2 Homes Added to Aberdeen Historic register
The Aberdeen Historic Preservation Commission has added their first 2 homes to the historic register.
Lisa Scott says that the commission voted at their last meeting to consider applications to list the home at 518 North B Street and the home at 1111 East First Street to the register. Both homes are over the 50 year age qualification, and met several of the criteria needed by the commission.
The owners of the homes submitted them for recognition. Laurel Shearer wanted her 1911 home on B Street added to the list, saying that it “embodies the distinctive architectural characteristics” that are required to be on the list.
Dann Sears and Nancy Lyle asked that their 1910 home on East First be added, citing it’s historical and architectural importance.
These are the first 2 homes to be added since the city began its register. They join the D&R Theater and Masonic Building.
The commission will be considering 4 additional homes tonight at their regular meeting.
Their goal for 2013 is to add another structure to the register each month.
