What is the Draper Historic Preservation Commission?
The Draper Historic Preservation Commission assists Draper City in identifying, preserving, protecting and enhancing historic buildings, sites, monuments, streetscapes and landmarks within the city deemed architecturally or historically significant.
We are a different group than the Draper Historical Society. Our focus is on documenting and preserving historic structures and sites in the city. We are a commission of volunteers appointed by the Draper City Council and work to provide advice and assistance to the Council and to the citizens of Draper.
Our meetings are open and are usually held on the first Wednesday of each month at Draper City Hall.
Please feel free to contact us if you would like information on historic structures in Draper City, advice on how to preserve and care for your historic building, Historic Tax Credits or help in being listed on our local Historic Register or the National Register of Historic Places.
Previous major projects or concerns included the preservation of the National Register Draper Park School, the Day Dairy Barn, the Draper Historic Town Center Walking Tour in both brochure and digital formats, the re-roofing of the National Register Joseph M. and Celestia Smith House, and the Sorensen Home relocation and rehabilitation.
Our members include:
