Historic Preservation Commission

The Historic Preservation Commission was formed in December of 2006 to:

  • Preserve historic structures, architecture, streetscapes and neighborhoods.
  • Promote the adaptive reuse of the surrounding environment through planning, preservation and education.
  • To recognize preservation efforts to encourage community support in ongoing historic preservation endeavors.

The Commission helped to establish an historic district in the downtown, which is now in place.  In 2010 the Commercial Historic Downtown District  was added to the National Register of Historic Places.

An application for a Certification of Appropriateness is required for façade work to be done on buildings located in the historic downtown district. 

There is a Facade Grant Program for business owners within the designated Commercial Historic District. Facade grants require the approval of Angola's Common Council, but must get approval for their project through the City's Historic Preservation Commission.

For more information please call or e-mail Downtown Services at 260-624-2698, downtown@angolain.org .
