Following surveys, several areas within Lincoln County have been determined eligible for historic designation.

“I’m thrilled the overall downtown districts are eligible, and hope that each community will want to move forward with the actual designation process,” said Kelly Larson, Lincoln County Economic Development Foundation Executive Director. “Being designated opens up marketing opportunities to attract visitors into a community, but it also provides financial resources to property owners to maintain and improve their properties.” Downtown Lincoln and Lincoln City Park are eligible to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places, while Downtown Sylvan Grove is eligible for the Register of Historic Kansas Places.

The National Register of Historic Places lists historic properties across the country, according to Live Lincoln County.
