Local Landmarks

There are currently 23 designated local historic landmarks. When your property is granted local landmark status, it is protected from drastic changes that would affect the exterior historic or architectural character and it will ensure that same protection for future generations. 

 
Any improvement to a Local Landmark that is visible from a public way requires a Certificate of Appropriateness (C of A), available through the GLC. Through guidelines outlined in Galesburg’s Historic Preservation ordinance and partnering with the Galesburg Landmark Commission (GLC), property owners are provided resources that afford them options when considering changes, as well as parameters designed to help maintain the historic significance of the property.
