This Place Matters


The month of May every year is set aside as Preservation month.  Downtown Boone has so much to celebrate when it comes to preservation and the history in our little town, and are pleased to participate in the national campaign spearheaded by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, #ThisPlaceMatters.

On May 4th, 2018, as part of our monthly First Friday Art Crawl, we had five members of our Historic Preservation Committee share oral histories of five buildings in our downtown.  You can read the scripts from those shared oral histories, as well as view photos of the different  buildings over time, but clicking on the following links:
