Southborough Historical Commission introduces Historic House Sign Program

Southborough – The Southborough Historical Commission announced the Historic House Sign Program, providing an opportunity to invest owners of historic or architecturally significant houses with pride, knowledge, and the ability to serve as conscious custodians of their home's heritage.

Seen throughout many New England cities and towns, historic house signs?enhance the appearance of older homes, while promoting community awareness of local history. Participation in the program does not limit a property in any way.

For $62, which includes shipping and handling, a homeowner can submit an application to the Historical Commission stating the age of the home and, if applicable, the historical significance of the structure.?The commission will review applications at its monthly meeting, and then submit orders to Ould Colony Artisans.

Historical data on most of Southborough's historical properties can be found on the Massachusetts Historical Commission's site: http://mhc-macris.net/macrisdisclaimer.htm.

Contact the Historical Commission at historical@southboroughma.com with any questions or comments.?Order forms are available at the Southborough Town House.
