Richland County Conservation Commission is charged with identifying and promoting the development and preservation of historical resources. The rich stories of our county’s people are best told in the places where they lived, learned, worked and worshipped. Who we are and what we value can be seen in the buildings that tell these stories.
Historic Preservation Grants
Grants are available to preserve/restore historically significant buildings and to develop educational and research programs that promote historic preservation in Richland County.
Richland County offers a special tax assessment that abates property taxes for 20 years for the restoration of historically significant buildings.
