Since Spring 2015, GRIA has been working to add Remington to the National Register of Historic Places. We were approved in Winter 2017!
What is the National Register of Historic Places?
The National Register of Historic Places is the United States federal government’s official list of districts, sites, buildings, structures, and objects deemed worthy of preservation. Listing in the National Register does not involve any additional oversight in the permitting process for private individuals (as would be the case for local CHAP districts), but it does open up the possibility of financial incentives and grant funding opportunities to homeowners and businesses which we are not currently eligible for.
GRIA will be hosting workshops to guide neighbors on completing an application. Please contact us if you are interested!
Mary Ellen Hayward, a well known local historian, completed an excellent nomination for the neighborhood. The document includes architectural descriptions and a brief history of every block in Remington along with representative photographs and a general history of the area. It’s a very interesting read if you’re into Remington history!
