Historic Districts & Local Historic Sites

Historic resources are buildings, sites, structures and objects that possess  integrity of location, design, setting, materials, workmanship, feeling and association.  Owners of historic structures within the local historic districts are required to apply for a Certificate of Appropriateness (COA) for any exterior alterations, demolition, or relocation. Bowling Green presently has three local historic districts: the Downtown Commercial, Upper East Main Avenue, and College Hill. The Historic Preservation Board holds a public hearing for each Certificate of Appropriateness. At the public hearing, the Board reviews each application and decides what effect the proposed work will have on the historic building and historic district.
