Preservation provides a tangible link to our history. Historic and cultural properties are non-renewable resources that showcase the significant history of Pierce County architectural styles or cultural groups.
The Pierce County Register of Historic Places is an important tool Pierce County uses to provide public recognition and measures of protection for historically-significant properties in Pierce County. Properties are designated to the Register through a nomination process which includes evaluation and determination of eligibility for listing by the Landmarks and Historic Preservation Commission, and further review and adoption by the Pierce County Council.
