The CCHSM Historic Building Plaque Program is designed to provide interpretative plaques for buildings, structures, and/or locations, which are selected by the CCHSM and recognized as historic places. With the help of community partners, the HBPP creates an engaging way to educate the public about the rich histories of buildings throughout Clark County, which in turn creates a better sense of stewardship and community.
