LANSINGBURGH HISTORIC DISTRICT FOR LISTING IN THE NATIONAL REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES

Listing in the National Register provides property owners with important economic incentives for restoration through Historic Tax Credits. National Register Listing places no burden on property owners unless they wish to access tax credits of up to 50% of restoration costs.

The Central Lansingburgh Historic District includes properties from 110th Street to 120th Street. (see map)

The nomination, prepared by Neil Larson & Associates, a historic preservation consultant based in Kingston, NY, was funded by the City of Troy and the Troy Redevelopment Foundation, with oversight and assistance from the New York State Office of Historic Preservation.

The City of Troy is nominating the Lansingburgh Historic District for State and National Register Listings. The designation is an effort to continue and accelerate revitalization around the area envisioned in 1770 by Abraham J. Lansing as a thriving riverport market center for raw products from the Mohawk Valley and upper Hudson River region.
