The Loveland Historic Register is a prestigious list of properties within the municipal limits that have been designated as historic landmarks by the City Council. Properties on the Loveland Historic Register are eligible for preservation incentives, provided any changes made to them comply with the Secretary of Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation. Since the program’s inception in 2002, the City has listed 74 properties on the Loveland Historic Register including the establishment of three historic districts. There is no cost to have your property listed on the register and participation is completely voluntary. Properties on the register must be over 50 years old and must display historic significance to the Loveland community through architecture or connections to important historic people, themes, or events.
In addition to the pride in ownership and the protections provided by historic designation, owners of Loveland Historic Register properties may take advantage of tax incentives and compete for grant programs to maintain their historic properties. Both federal and state tax credits may be available to owners rehabilitating properties with landmark status. The State Historical Fund grant program and the City’s zero-interest Landmark Rehabilitation Loan Program may also be available to fund restoration projects.
