Historic districts

For more than 40 years, PEC has worked to create historic districts across its nine-county service area in an effort to bring communities together to think about the long-term protection of their unique cultural, historic and natural assets. National Register-listed historic districts recognize and honor significant cultural landscapes and the natural features, historic buildings and structures that they encompass.
