Plaque Program

Since its inception, the Society has sponsored historic plaques for Venice-area buildings.  Currently, the Society is identifying appropriate commercial buildings for historic plaque designation.  The buildings are located in an area of Venice entitled The John Nolen Plan of Venice Historic District, an area that was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2010.  For more information, please refer to the Research Page of this website.  The Historic Plaque Program is funded through the generosity of the Ehrhart Family Foundation.
