May is National Preservation Month and this year’s theme is “Discover America’s Hidden Gems.” Communities from coast to coast are filled with unexplored historic treasures—and May’s the month to celebrate them! Reach out to a growing audience of neighbors, tourists, students and preservationists by promoting historic places in your community, and encourage newcomers to learn more about your local preservation programs.

This Tuesday evening May 22 at 7:00 p.m. City of Grass Valley City Council will consider whether or not to protect all the lovely historical homes near the central downtown area. In Grass Valley we have one of the most unique collection of residential architectural styles including beautiful old Victorians, wonderful examples of the arts and crafts movement and even an old rammed earth home!! You can learn more about historic homes in Grass Valley by reading this article by Gwynn Waldsmith at: http://www.theunion.com/article/20100807/NEWS/100809813 . I love old houses because they add so much character to our community and protecting old houses helps to protect property values for us all !! I hope to see you at the City Council this Tuesday evening.
