Historic House Signs

Posted

The Rehoboth Historical Commission strives to preserve the wonderful history of Rehoboth, and to help bring awareness of the history to its citizens. Rehoboth is filled with old homes, some dating back to the 1600s. Some have preserved their originality, while others have been updated to more modern times. No matter the condition of the home, the history provides the house with personality, and makes for a meaningful property. In order to celebrate these homes, The Rehoboth Historical Commission has created an application for homeowners whose homes date prior to 1901 and would like to have a historic structure marker for their home. The 9x12 inch marker will contain the name assigned to the property, the date built, and the seal of the Rehoboth Historical Commission. The sign and application will not put the house on any historical register, or affect it in any way. It is simply a way to recognize and celebrate the old home. A model of the marker, along with applications, will be available at the Blanding Library located at 124 Bay State Road in Rehoboth, MA. The application can also be found on the town website located under the “Historical Commission” tab followed by the “Boards & Committees” tab. Proceeds from the marker will go towards the manufacturing of the sign, and towards historical education and programs. This is a great opportunity to have a historic home recognized, and to let the community see how many wonderful antique homes are in our town.
