Warrensburg is home to many historic resources, including seven individually listed structures on the National Register of Historic Places, the Grover Street Victorian Historic District, and one local landmark. However, there are many historic resources in Warrensburg that are not officially recognized. The Historic Preservation Commission
would like to recognize the investment of all of our local property owners who have worked hard to keep our historic structures beautiful! Preservation not only allows future generations to learn about and appreciate Warrensburg’s unique and important history, it also provides economic benefits to our local businesses and property owners.
A total of fifteen prize drawings for the Architectural Scavenger Hunt will take place throughout May! Prizes include Chamber Gift Certificates from the Historic Preservation Commission; t-shirts, pint glasses, and more from Main Street; ornaments from Johnson County Historical Society; and decorative hand painted plates from Old Drum Gallery.
