PRESERVATION

For almost 40 years, Historic City of Jefferson has been working to protect our community's historic buildings.

We have a variety of resources available to help individuals wishing to purchase their first historic home as well as for current historic homeowners who have questions.

Explore our resources and reach out to us directly with any questions. 

WHAT EXACTLY IS A HISTORIC BUILDING?

In Jefferson City, a historic building is typically defined as any building 100 years or older. However, there are exceptions to this. For example, a 80 year old building located in a Historic District is often thought of as historic. Additionally, the building's history must be taken into account.

WHAT ARE HISTORIC TAX CREDITS?

The Historic Tax Credit (HTC) is a proven tax incentive for both revitalizing historic community assets and supporting economic development and recovery. Since 1977, the program's accomplishments include $181 billion in estimated investment, 46,000 certified rehabilitation projects, 2.9+ million jobs supported, and 178,000+ units of low- and moderate-income housing units created.

Historic tax credit projects increase property values, draw new businesses, attract new residents, and enlarge the tax base.
