The Village's central business district was recently approved for listing on the National Register of Historic Places for both a north district (north of the railroad tracks) and a south district (south of the railroad tracks).

Historic districts recognize the historic and architectural importance of buildings throughout the nation; and help to preserve the character and identity of communities
Historic districts may promote the economic vitality of the Central Business District through the growth of new and existing businesses
Many people across the country enjoy taking part in heritage tourism and visiting historic buildings, museums and districts
Tax incentives are available for the certified rehabilitation of income-producing properties listed on the National Register
