HISTORIC PRESERVATION PLAN
The Historic Preservation Plan is a tool for shaping the future of the community by including its rich heritage of ethnic groups, commercial businesses, unique residential architecture and its strong mining history.
The Historic Preservation Plan for the City of Lead begins with the several surveys that have been completed, beginning in 1973, to develop the Historic District and in 2000 as the Homestake Mine began its plans for closure. A recent 2019 survey will be available soon.
The Historic Preservation Plan can be found in its entirety in the links below.
