Greenwich Landmark Recognition Program Honors The Brant Foundation

August 10th, 2017

The Greenwich Landmark Recognition Program (Greenwich Historical Society) honors distinctive properties that reflect Greenwich’s unique architectural heritage. Since the program’s inception in 1987 as “Signs of the Times,” under the leadership of Claire Vanderbilt, the Historical Society has celebrated more than 300 structures. The program was the first broad-based local effort to undertake detailed research and documentation of individual properties and to make the information accessible to the public. Each property is professionally researched, with all related documents preserved in the Historical Society’s Archives. Owners receive an official Greenwich Landmark plaque, a title search and a formal architectural description of the home. Landmark designation does not restrict an owner’s right to modify a building or site.

Founded in 1931, the Greenwich Historical Society is committed to contributing to the cultural vitality of Greenwich and surrounding areas while ensuring the preservation of historic buildings and grounds for the future.
