Historic Homes Grant


The Hollywood-Rose Hill (HRH) Historic House Project is designed to educate, document and celebrate the history and charm of our neighborhood, one of the oldest intact neighborhoods in Columbia. The grant research and document up to 91 HRH homes in the neighborhood. This activity is open to all HRH homeowners with homes older than 50 years. We will accept up to 26 applications from homes attributed in design to the Columbia architect J. Carroll Johnson and the rest will represent ALL TYPES of houses in HRH. As of September 30, we have 66% of the maximum number of applications already approved. If you are considering an application we encourage you to get that in soon (application below). 

If accepted into the program, we will: 1) Pay a researcher to document significant details of your house, including date of construction; 2) Pay 50% of the cost ($85) of a high quality historic house plaque with the HRH logo, date of construction and one other interesting bit of information (architect, notable homeowner, etc.)* and 3) Potentially use your house in a color brochure highlighting HRH historic homes. The HRHNA committee will approve all plaque information and documentation. The brochure will be shared with Historic Columbia and used to supplement three HRH Historic Walking Tours conducted by Dr. Chuck Lesser. These tours will be free of charge and available to residents of any neighborhood. 

The historic house plaques will look something like the one below. If you are interested in submitting an application:
