The Bartlett Historical Society is now accepting nominations for its annual awarding of historical plaque to homes, commercial, public or residential buildings and barns that are at least 50 years old. The plaques, which are paid for by the historical society and can be placed on the historical buildings, are purely honorary and place no obligations or restrictions on the owner or the property. Nominations are due by March 1. Structures are evaluated on their architectural value or if a historically prominent person once lived there. Priority will be placed on the oldest structures, ones most faithful to the original structure and ones maintained in good condition. Additions must be sympathetic to the original design. For information and a nomination form, email or call (630) 289-8592.
