Programs Historic Plaques  Honor your historic home with a descriptive plaque! We pull information from property records, maps, city directories, biographies, and anywhere else we can to create a narrative about the history of your home, including architectural style and notable residents. Plaques are researched by our Historic Preservation Manager and a group of dedicated volunteers.


Brick Sidewalk Conversion Grant Our brick sidewalks are a trademark and important historical feature of German Village. Over the years, some of our sidewalks have fallen to disrepair and others were replaced with cement/concrete/packed gravel. To help homeowners with the cost of maintaining historic bricks and/or to convert a sidewalk to brick, we offer up to $700 in reimbursement grants to offset your costs.

*The program is currently on hold as we seek additional funding.
