The Salem Historic Landmarks Commission (HLC) has some exciting projects this year! They have just launched their first photo education project called A Peek into Salem's Past on their new Twitter feed. They will be posting a new historic photo every day. To check it out, follow them on Twitter @SalemHLC. They also maintain a blog which you can access by clicking here.
Another fun project they are working on with the Grant Neighborhood is a new Architectural Guidebook. In an upcoming episode, we will be interviewing Professor Thomas Hubka, who has been working with several talented interns and the Grant Neighborhood to develop a new guidebook for residents and visitors to the Grant Neighborhood. To see a draft of the guidebook, click here.
The HLC is continuing to offer their Residential Toolbox Grants, which are a great help to those who own historic homes here in Salem. For more information please click here.
