ElmwoodHistoricDistrict.org is your resource for learning about and benefiting from owning a historic building in the National Register-listed Elmwood Historic District (West) in the heart of the City of Buffalo.
On December 4, 2012, he State Board for Historic Preservation voted unanimously to recommend the addition of the Elmwood Historic District (West) to the State and National Registers of Historic Places during its meeting at Philipse Manor Hall State Historic Site.
Certified and contributing historic buildings, like those in the National Register-listed Elmwood Historic District (West), are now eligible for specialized funding and owners can claim tax credits for many maintenance and improvement costs.
Other benefits of historic districts are creating a sense and pride of place among neighbors, branding a neighborhood specifically it’s historic commercial corridor, and creating economic opportunities for rehabilitation through tax credits and grants focused on historic buildings.
This website is a public service to the neighborhood maintained by Clinton Brown Company Architecture. We are a full-service historic preservation architecture firm specializing in applying for historic preservation tax credits.
We have provided the professional preservation services to the Richmond Ashland National Register Historic District Initiative, a community group that sparked the creation of the Elmwood Historic District (West) through a grassroots process of public meetings, community fundraising/grant writing, and then engaging experts.
