Centennial Home Recognition Program

In 2017, the Landmarks Commission launched the Centennial Home Recognition Program. This program seeks to identify and recognize those houses existing today in North Olmsted that were built in or before 1915, the city’s centennial year, in order to acknowledge their local historical significance and importance to the community. Owners of eligible houses may obtain program recognition by verifying their house’s age by submitting the application found below.
