Hillsdale’s Historic District
In January 2010, the Hillsdale Historic Hamlet District, with 82 historic structures, was added to the National Register of Historic Places, the National Park Service’s official list of districts, sites, buildings, structures, and objects deemed worthy of preservation. Not only does having a property on the National Register make some property owners eligible for tax incentives, this is a highly symbolic honor and recognizes the Hamlet’s architectural diversity and unique origins as a cultural crossroads. See map of the district.
