The Historic Commission promotes awareness of Wheaton's history and appreciation for the city’s heritage through preserving historical documents, maintaining city archives and recommending appropriate historic programs and projects. The commission coordinates activities for Preservation Week and recognizes Historic Landmarks in Wheaton.
"Great Fires of Wheaton" Postponed
The Historic Commission's "Great Fires of Wheaton" presentation, originally scheduled for Sept. 16 at the Wheaton Public Library, has been postponed to a later date to be determined. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Each May the City’s Historic Commission coordinates Preservation Month to coincide with the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s annual national celebration. During this time, the Historic Commission places "Pride in Preservation purple lawn signs throughout Wheaton at designated Wheaton Historic Landmarks and locations listed on the Wheaton Register of Historic Places. Many of these sites include a plaque with the estimated date of construction or a permanent interpretive sign with more additional information.
For an online tour of Wheaton's Landmarks, visit the Wheaton Register of Historic Places Program and select "View Wheaton Register of Historic Places."
