Historic Preservation

The City of Champaign provides numerous resources to promote the preservation and restoration of local buildings and history. This page provides information and resources to residents about researching the history of your home or business, or listing your property on the National Register of Historic Places or as a Local Landmark.

The Historic Preservation Commission is charged with nominating properties as Local Landmarks, weighing in on applications for the National Register of Historic Places, and reviewing proposed alterations to the exterior of local landmarks in order to protect their architectural and historic integrity.

The Planning and Development Department provides staff support to the Historic Preservation Commission. Please contact the Planning and Development Department at 217-403-8800 for more information.
