Recognizing historic Eveleth structures since 1999.
Since 1999, the Eveleth Heritage Society has presented a historic preservation award to the owners of a commercial, residential, or government building that has maintained its architectural integrity. The award was renamed after the National Trust for Historic Preservation launched “This Place Matters” in 2008, asking individuals to select and promote places that were significant to their lives and their community. This Place Matters highlights the important role that historic buildings and properties play in preserving our national heritage. Eveleth residents and visitors are invited to look at the buildings where the awards have been given and consider what stories these buildings have to tell about our past and about our future. Your input about our local treasures is important. If you feel that a building should be considered for the Eveleth Heritage Society's This Place Matters Award, please contact us.
