The city has taken steps to preserve and promote its heritage after the 1965 decision of the Mayor and Council to create the Historic District Commission.
Our local historic districts are reviewed by the Historic District Commission under the zoning ordinance. In addition, the city also has National Register Historic Districts that are implemented through our partners: National Park Service and Maryland Historical Trust.
Please Note: Historic Preservation staff continue to provide essential services from home during the closure of Rockville City Hall due to COVID-19 virus restrictions. Contact staff by email for more information.
