Is Your Home a Historic Landmark?


A new interactive map has been added to the Village's interactive maps library.

Residents using the Village's new Historic Resource Application need only to enter an address to find out if their property is a potential Historic Landmark in Downers Grove.

The application provides historic information identified in three previous surveys:

  • The early 1970s State of Illinois Historic Architectural and Archaeology Resources Geographic Information System (HAARGIS) survey.
  • The 2009 Village Historic Preservation Plan identifies HAARGIS buildings, designated Downers Grove Historical Society properties, and Sears Homes.
  • The 2013 Village Historic Building Survey surveyed 865 properites in Denburn Woods, Shady Lane Estates, E.H. Prince Subdivision and Maple Avenue/Main Street corridor

The Village has mapped the properties identified in these documents on this map to help property owners determine if their home is a potential Historic Landmark.
