Kenmore Great Streets District added to National Register of Historic Places
Sep 10, 2019
The National Park Service has added Akron’s Kenmore Boulevard Historic District to its National Register of Historic Places.
Tina Boyes, executive director of the Kenmore Neighborhood Alliance, announced the designation at the organization’s final “Kenmore First Friday” event of the year. It is the first such designation for an Akron neighborhood business district.
The designation makes properties in the district eligible for historic tax credits, which can have “catalytic economic impact,” according to Ohio’s Office of Strategic Investments.
