Historic Preservation

In 2011 the City of Puyallup adopted Historic Preservation Chapter 21.22 (Ord. 2986) to provide for the identification, evaluation, designation, and protection of historic resources within the boundaries of the City. With local support, the City established the Register of Historic Places to preserve a sense of community's history for this and future generations. We support the community's effort to preserve historical, architectural, and cultural resources, including monuments, sites, landscapes, objects, structures, buildings, and historic districts. The preservation of historical buildings and sites fosters civic and neighborhood pride, and maintains our community's sense of identity.

Who can apply?

Generally speaking, if your home is 50 years old or more, represents a distinct architectural style or period that is culturally significant to Puyallup's history, is associated with an important individual or event, or has local, state, or national significance, your property may be eligible for listing on the local, state, or national register of historic places.
