** HHS Plaque Program **


plaqueHollywood Historical Society is reinstating our Plaque Program for historic properties (which are at least 50-years-old) throughout the city.* The Program is a local recognition by HHS to bring awareness to and commemorate Hollywood’s hidden historic properties. This is a voluntary program that is initiated by the property owner and carried out by HHS. Note: These designations do not restrict the property owner’s rights in any way.


Property owners need to submit this form to HHS for review and approval. The review consists of comparing the house or structure with criteria as described in the City of Hollywood Design Guidelines for Historic Properties plus guidelines established by HHS. Once forms and research have been completed by the owner and reviewed by HHS, a plaque may be commissioned.


plaqueThe cost of the plaque is based on size and material used, but is generally between $400 and $800. The plaque cost, plus an administration fee of $50, is the responsibility of the property owner; and must be paid after a decision by HHS, but before the plaque is created. Also, with permission from the property owner, HHS will have a small unveiling ceremony where important historical information about the structure will be shared.


On March 6, 2021 HHS members & supporters attended our first new Historic Plaque Unveiling at Clive Taylor's "Jalousie House" (pictured on left).


*The original program started in 1982 and continued into the early 2000’s. Then the CRA and HHS collaborated on a marker program for Hollywood’s historic downtown district in 2017 & 2018. (List of Plaque Sites 1982-2000)
