Historic Plaque Program

Historic PlaqueThe Office of Historic Preservation is pleased to announce the Historic Plaque Program! Historic plaques are available for individual local landmarks and contributing properties within local historic districts.  The plaques will visually identify those properties and districts that have been officially recognized by the City of San Antonio for their architectural and historical significance. San Antonio currently has 27 local historic districts and more than 2,000 individual local landmarks.

The plaques, available for purchase for $95, are of cast aluminum with raised silver letters on a dark grey background.  The plaque is approximately inches in diameter and ¼ inch thick.

Marty Kushner receiving first historic plaqueOn May 5th, at the State of Preservation Address, we presented Marty Kushner with the first Historic Structure plaque. Others who ordered plaques were also in attendance to witness this commemorative moment and to receive their plaques.  If you ordered a plaque and still need to pick it up, you may do so at our offices located at 1901 S. Alamo between 7:45am-4:30pm Monday-Friday.

For those interested in ordering a plaque, we have a few remaining from this first round and we will sell these on a first come-first serve basis. We will continue to order future plaques as need merits. Please fill out an application at the link below. If you have questions regarding the Historic Plaque Program, please contact Nicholas Fuqua by phone at        207-0066 or by email at nicholas.fuqua@sanantonio.gov.
