Some portion of the downtown zone has been assigned as a National Historic District. There is impressive data accessible in the files of the Historical Society about structures in the focal piece of town, however this data is scattered through the exploration done by William P. Hinckley, the works of R.G.F. Candage, a huge document of photos, and different notes and records, as indicated by a news discharge.

It will create a document of data for each building which will incorporate a present photo, past photos where they are accessible and references to that working from the other recorded sources. This data will live at the Historical Society and will be accessible to any individual who wishes to get to it.
The underlying period of the “Building History” venture will build up a framework which enables speedy access to data with respect to the historical backdrop of each working in the quick town zone.
