Cecil County Historic District Commission Works to Protect Historic and Architectural Resources

The Cecil County Historic District Commission (HDC) works to protect the area’s historic and architectural resources.  The duties of the HDC include making recommendations on applications for historic designation.  In addition to preserving the County’s past, there are a number of additional benefits to designation.  Those include a 10% property tax credit for approved restoration efforts and perpetual protection from demolition of the property.
