Long recognized as an invaluable cultural and social resource, our historic heritage can also be a powerful economic engine. Properly preserved and utilized, Georgia's Historic Hometowns invite tourism, investment and jobs. Our goal as custodians is to promote and insure the healthy future of Jefferson through education and the proper restoration and preservation of our Historic Districts.

The Jefferson Historic Preservation Commission was created by the Historic Preservation Commission Ordinance of 1986.  The Commission consists of five members who are appointed by the governing body of the City of Jefferson.  Members of the Commission have a variety of duties.  Among those duties are: Reviewing all Certificate of Appropriateness applications, making recommendations to the city of any property or structure that should be included in a historic district, and to promote and encourage the preservation of historic buildings and properties.
