Preservation meeting set today

Beverly Historic Landmarks Commission welcomes the public to attend a presentation of the recently updated historic survey. Courtney Fint Zimmerman of Aurora Research Associates will present her findings on Tuesday at 6 p.m. at the Beverly Heritage Center. After the presentation, the public meeting will discuss proposed updates and additions to the Beverly Historic District.

Zimmerman conducted the survey, which updated information on the historic properties of Beverly. There will also be an opportunity for residents to ask questions or provide more information about specific properties.

“The Beverly Historic District was one of the earliest districts designated in West Virginia,” said Phyllis Baxter, president of the Beverly Historic Landmarks Commission. “The goal of this project is to update that nomination to include additional information and research, and to include more 20th century buildings that we now consider historic.”

This project was funded through a survey and planning grant from the West Virginia State Historic Preservation Office and the WV Division of Culture and History.
