FCLF awards plaques to promote the preservation and restoration of our county’s heritage.
FCLF plaques are awarded to property owners of buildings and structures that are over 100 years of age, possess historical and/or architectural significance, and retain physical integrity. They recognize and encourage good stewardship. During the past four decades, FCLF is proud to have awarded more than 400 plaques.
The plaques are black cast iron ovals representing the FCLF logo. They measure 10 inches wide and 5 1/2 inches tall, and weigh 3 pounds. A brass plate, etched with the property’s unique registry number, is affixed to the center.
Schifferstadt Architectural Museum, designated a National Historic Landmark by the United States Secretary of the Interior in 2017, was the first building to be recognized by the program and is registered as plaque #001. A registry of plaqued properties is maintained by FCLF, and records are made available at FCLF and Heritage Frederick.
