Greenwood’s Historic Residential District Gets Added to National Register of Historic Places
A residential neighborhood in downtown Greenwood has been officially designated on the National Register of Historic Places.
According to a city release, the homes, some of which are more than 150 years old, are located northeast of Main Street and U.S. 31 and are on both sides of Madison Avenue.
“This designation is the result of a great public private partnership between City officials, Restore Old Town Greenwood, and state agencies,” said Greenwood Mayor Mark W. Myers. “Together we have created an environment that will foster a spirit of preservation and restoration in this important historic neighborhood.”
According to the release, Ed Ferguson, who led the project, will receive the official certification of designation on behalf of the city at the annual Department of Natural Resources Historic Preservation Awards Ceremony on Aug. 7, 2017.
