Historic Preservation in Rural AZ

ALL proceeds from the Cottonwood Historic Home and Building Tour go toward preservation of landmarked properties in Cottonwood through the Cottonwood Historic Preservation Commission’s small grant program.

The Program is administered by the Historic Preservation Commission to help beautify and preserve historic homes in Cottonwood. Landmarked property owners are eligible to apply for up to 50% of the total project cost to fund repairs on their historic home.  Repairs and maintenance can include things like a new roof, paint jobs, or restoring historic elements that are missing or damaged to the home.  There are other similar programs across the state, most of which are funded through tax subsidies from local municipalities. Cottonwood's Matching Grant Program is funded solely through the sales of Home Tour tickets. This keeps money in the community and furthers the historic goals of the town. This program is a great way to beautify neighborhoods and preserve Cottonwood's historic character.
