Historic Preservation

Original plaque found on homes.

Moving into a Belmont Village home means moving into a home built with a quality of material and craftsmanship not common today.  Each house tells a unique story mixing the accounts of all of the previous owners who have tended to it over the years.  As a current homeowner or an individual looking to buy in Belmont Village, a passion for preserving the historic charm of one’s home benefits not only one’s individual property value but also the integrity of the collective neighborhood.
