[ARCHIVED] Historic Plaques


Historic House Plaques Program

The Kingston Historical Commission announces the launch of a historic house plaque program to encourage an awareness of Kingston’s many historic structures.

  • Houses should be 80 years old or older to receive a plaque.
  • Research is done primarily by the homeowner using information using the Registry of Deeds, the Kingston Public Library Local History Room and other resources.
  • Once research has been submitted and approved by the Commission, the owners can place an order for their house plaque that would feature the name(s) of the first owners and the date of construction. The homeowner is responsible for ordering and the cost of the plaque, which currently is $135 plus tax.
  • There are absolutely no restrictions or regulations that accompany the house plaque. It simply represents a recognition and authentication, on the part of the Kingston Historical Commission, of the date and name of the house.

Those interested in researching their homes and acquiring a historic house plaque can complete one of our applications. They are available on-line at the Historical Commission’s page on the Kingston Town website and via email. If applicants have any questions, they can contact the Kingston Historical Commission via USPS mail at the Kingston Town House, 26 Evergreen St., by email at or by attending one of our meetings, normally held on the second Wednesday of each month.
