Historical Plaques

Properties that contribute to historic districts listed in the NM Register of Cultural Properties are eligible to display a historical plaque.

316 Plaque Close-up Best

The Monte Vista and College View Historic District in Nob Hill is listed in that register.  When the district was listed in 1998, 702 of the 852 structures in the district contributed to its historic character and were eligible. The list of 702 structures appears in the August 2000 nomination of the district to the National Register which you can download on our Historic District page.  If you’re unsure, just contact us.

The August 2000 nomination tells the year that each property in the district was built. We’re happy to look for other historical information on your property and assist you in developing a citation for your plaque.  Citations often contain information like the year of construction, names of the builder, designer, or first occupant, and the architectural style(s) of your house. Citations can provide a vivid picture of Nob Hill history and architecture.

Plaques of cast bronze are available from the Historical Society of NM which charges $285 for each plaque. Once you receive your plaque we are happy to help you mount the plaque as you direct at no cost. We recommend the “blind tapped” option.
