On Wednesday, May 14, Mayor Steve Tumlin and City Council recognized the important role historic preservation plays in Marietta's community by proclaiming the month of May Historic Preservation Month.
Marietta has a rich, cultural heritage that includes both public and private historic resources that seek to tell the story of the City's past. Continued historic preservation efforts have been known to increase economic development and tourism, help revitalize neighborhoods, promote local pride, and maintain a community's sense of character.
Marietta's Historic Preservation Commission and Historic Board of Review were thanked by the Mayor and Council for their constant efforts to preserve the history of the City. Historic Preservation Month provides an opportunity for citizens of all ages and from all walks of life to recognize the important role that historic preservation plays in individual lives and in communities.
The theme for the 2014 Historic Preservation Month is "New Age of Preservation: Embark, Inspire, Engage."
