Historic Anderson

ChurchAnderson Historical & Cultural Preservation Commission
The Anderson Historical and Cultural Preservation Commission was established in the early 1980s to preserve, promote, and develop the historical and cultural resources of Anderson. In order to help maintain and preserve historic features in the districts, the commission reviews all exterior modifications made to structures and sites in the districts. Historic guidelines were created in 1995 to help protect and maintain our precious resources.

The districts include a variety of parks, homes, apartment buildings, and some commercial establishments. There are about 300 structures in each of the residential districts and approximately 60 in the Downtown District.
