2015 Most Notable Properties Program

The Historic Preservation Commission’s 2015 “Most Notable Properties” event will be held in the lobby of the historic Missouri Theatre (203 S. Ninth Street) on Monday, May 11, 2015 at  6:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.  Historic preservation commissioners will introduce this year’s award winners followed by a video presentation of the historic properties and preservationists. Award winners have been encouraged to bring memorabilia (pictures, newspaper articles, etc.) to display at the event and will have an opportunity to speak following the presentation.

 Since 1998, the annual “Most Notable Properties” event has been an opportunity for the public to view some of Columbia’s fine historic and architecturally significant properties and meet the Columbia Historic Preservation Commission. The public is encouraged to attend this free event.


About the program:

Since 1998, the City’s Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) has been recognizing Most Notable Historic Properties.  These properties are at least 50 years old, located within the City of Columbia corporate limits, and have architectural or historical characteristics which contribute to our City’s social and/or aesthetic resources. They may be endangered, derelict, recently restored, or nicely maintained. They may be modest or grand, hidden away or in public view. Stephens Stables, Columbia’s Brick Streets, the Blue Note, Ragtag Cinema/Uprise Bakery, Booches, Wabash Station, the Tiger Hotel, and Frederick Douglas High School are some of the 140 recognized Most Notable Properties.

Applications are due (or post-marked) by November 1 of each year for the following award cycle. Applications may be mailed to or dropped off at the Community Development Department at 701 E. Broadway, Columbia, MO 65201. Applications can also be emailed to planning@como.gov.

For more information, please contact the Community Development Department at 573.874.7239.
