The Historic Preservation Board of Delray Beach is very serious about preserving history and especially when it comes to old structures and historic homes. They work in tandem with the city commissioners to oversee all preservation measures of the city.
The Board is there for the purpose to help in retaining and protecting the character of these homes and neighborhoods. The Board reviews all new building permits for alterations, add-ons, renovations, new construction and demolition requests. You can learn more about historic homes here: Historic Homes Delray Beach
The home in the photo above was relocated and restored instead of tearing it down to build a new home. This was done by the Delray Beach CRA.
