Historic Preservation Update
The number one draw for overnight marketable trips to Ohio is by those seeking to visit historic places. Ohio’s abundance of historic sites and buildings anchor our charming towns, creating distinctive Ohio experiences.
Today, the Ohio Development Services Agency awarded Ohio Historic Preservation Tax Credits to 30 new applicants planning to rehabilitate 36 historic buildings. These projects highlight the unique character of 13 Ohio communities. They will be attractions for visitors and new homes for businesses.
This is the first time historic preservation tax credits have been awarded in Bedford, Fairview Park, Troy, and Urbana. The awards will assist private developers in rehabilitating historic buildings in downtowns and neighborhoods.
“Preserving these historic buildings creates opportunities for small businesses and revitalizes downtowns,” said David Goodman, director of the Ohio Development Services Agency. “We’re capitalizing on what makes Ohio unique.”
