I have a plaque on my house; what does it mean?

There are a couple of different plaques that you may see throughout the historic districts. One is the shape of Clay County. The county selected certain homes as important landmarks and identified these with a plaque. Another may be a plaque that says the building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This is an honorary designation that does not place any restrictions on the property. 

There may also be a Century House plaque, which identifies the year the house was built.  The City of Liberty's Century House Project was created to celebrate the rich history of architecture in Liberty. Owners of Liberty houses and commercial buildings 100 years or older are invited to participate in the program.These plaques are available for purchase for any building that is 100 years old or older.
