Historic resources and landmarks are pieces of our history. Landmarks help us remember who we are and where our community fits into our county, state, and nation. Landmarks help create a feeling of civic pride by celebrating our community and help us envision a future that builds on past successes. Landmarks are about more than architecture, they also recall people, events, and significant achievements. Historic landmarks are also of interest to people and can attract visitors.
Modesto established its Landmark Preservation ordinance in 1988, following the demolition of many beautiful old buildings in downtown. Shortly thereafter, the City began an extensive survey of remaining historic buildings and other objects. This survey formed the basis for Modesto’s Landmark Preservation Program.
The Modesto Landmark Preservation Commission advises City Council on matters related to historic structures and other resources in addition to policies and practices pertaining to preservation of Modesto's landmarks.
