Historic Districts

The City of Rochester Hills has a rich heritage dating back to the early 1800's. In 1978, the former Avon Township established a study committee that evaluated and eventually recommended areas of the township to be designated as historic districts. Upon adoption of the Historic Preservation Ordinance in 1979, several areas were officially designated Historic Districts, and a Historic Districts Commission was appointed to guide the preservation and protection of resources within these districts. At present day, the City of Rochester Hills has 30 single historic districts.
