Historic Preservation Overview

 
West Palm Beach is fortunate to enjoy an abundance of beautiful historical areas. The region includes 16 locally-designated historic districts, nine of which have earned a spot on the National Register of Historic Places.
 
Each of the City’s historic districts have their own distinct character. It’s the mission of the Historic Preservation program to maintain this heritage for future generations. To ensure this, any exterior modification to a historic structure must comply with our Historic Preservation Ordinance.
 
The City also features 37 individually-designated sites. The City of West Palm Beach initiated a survey of the historical and architectural resources of the community in 1988. Since then we have adopted an Historic Preservation Ordinance; participate in the Florida Certified Local Government Program; and offer an Ad Valorem Tax Exemption Program.
 
We hope you find the following pages helpful. If you have any questions about the program or application process, please contact our City Historic Preservation Planner, at (561) 822-1457.
