Public invited to Feb. 1, 2011 Notable Property Gala

Tuesday, Feb. 1, 2011 is the date set for the annual Most Notable Property Gala.

The event is free and open to the public.

It will be held in the Historic Daniel Boone Building (City Hall) at 701 E. Broadway, with a presentation at 7 p.m. (This will be an excellent opportunity to see the newly renovated former Daniel Boone Tavern.)

At this event, the City of Columbia Historic Preservation Commission will unveil the home, buildings and properties selected for this year’s Most Notable Property.

In past years, the presentation has included photographs and a short history of the property.

The Historic Preservation Commission has been naming properties to a list of Most Notable Properties since 1998. Many years, the Commission named 10 properties to the list with those properties. Past properties named have included commercial properties, private homes, churches, buildings on the campuses of Stephens, Columbia College and the University of Missouri. There are even two cemeteries on the list of Notable Properties.
