Historic Homes

Our historic homes hold significant history and elegance. We support our historic landmarks by preserving them to help create connections to our city's heritage that give others an understanding about out history. Historic places help define and distinguish our communities by building a strong sense of identity. To ensure that historic sites such as Locust Grove and Riverside, the Farnsley-Moremen Landing remain a part of our community today, Metro Parks and Recreation protects and promotes these historic monuments to continue their legacy which has been written over the course of time.
