Wondering about those snazzy historic plaques, with the year the home was built, on quite a few of our neighbors’ houses? You, too, can get one — from the West Palm Beach Historic Preservation Board historic-designation plaque program.
Just order, pay and wait!
Print and fill out the city's form (below) and mail it to the city.
The cost of plaques is $160 each, payable to the City of West Palm Beach. Return the form and your check to City Hall, 401 Clematis St., P.O. Box 3366, Planning Department, West Palm Beach, FL 33402.
In order to keep the cost down, the city will not order plaques until several requests have accumulated. It takes from six to eight weeks to receive the plaques once they have been ordered. The city will notify you by phone when the plaque arrives.
