CPS will hold a workshop on researching your house on THURSDAY, APRIL 25, 5:45-7:45pm at the Charlestown Branch Library.
The free workshop is designed to help homeowners learn more about their houses and find documentation located in the Branch Library needed to apply for a CPS historic house marker. Very light refreshments will be served. Please bring a current photo and any documentation you might have for the question and answer period.
An additional workshop on deed documentation will be held on WEDNESDAY, MAY 22, 10-1 at the Middlesex Registry of Deeds, East Cambridge. This is limited to the first registrants to sign up by leaving a message at CPS’s answering machine at 617 241 7500. Please leave your contact information and property address. You will be called to confirm your registration. The Register is only open non-holiday weekdays. (If enough interest, will be repeated at a later date TBA).
CPS Historic Markers are a way to show civic pride and share our historic heritage with friends, neighbors, visitors, and each other.
These handsome bronze markers show the date your house was built and optionally, the name of the builder or original owner.
You can download more information and a historic marker application below.
The next round of applications will be accepted from April 15 – August 1, 2013.
