The City of Puyallup has an active historic preservation program that is administered by the Puyallup Design Review and Historic Preservation Board. The Puyallup Register of Historic Places, and historic property surveys and inventories are all part of this program focused on conserving and protecting the city’s historic resources and promoting civic awareness of the city’s robust history. 


The City of Puyallup, in 2011, adopted Historic Preservation Chapter 21.22 of the Puyallup Municipal Code to provide for the identification, evaluation, designation and protection of historic resources within the boundaries of the City. With regional support, the City established the Register of Historic Places to preserve a sense of the community.
