About Kirkwood

Historic Preservation

The Landmarks Commission recognizes and preserves properties that represent elements of the City's thriving cultural heritage and architectural history.   The designated landmarks and local historic districts include businesses, schools, churches, cemeteries, and a multitude of historically significant homes.  The mission of the Kirkwood Landmarks Commission is to protect, retain, and enhance such properties.  For a quick review of all properties see: Landmarks Commission Map.  For further information about the Landmarks Commission's mission and duties see: Landmarks Brochure.   For a walking tour of some of our Landmark properties see: Historic Kirkwood Landmarks Walking Tour.
