2011 HISTORIC PRESERVATION TAX CREDIT WORKSHOP
Sponsored by the Calumet Main Street Design Committee
The Keweenaw’s historic downtowns and neighborhoods are links to the past. They give a sense of place, identity, and stability to our communities – places in which people want to live, work, and explore.
Historic Preservation Tax Credits can take a bite out of the cost of maintaining or rehabilitating a historic building. Combined federal and state tax credits are available for up to 25% of total qualified rehabilitation costs with the potential for an additional 15% credit through the special competitive enhanced program.
Join Robbert McKay, Historical Architect with the Michigan State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) and administrator of the Federal Tax Credit program, for an introduction and overview to the Preservation Tax Incentives. For more information, refer to the Michigan State Housing Development Authority Web site http://www.michigan.gov/mshda/ - click on the Historic Preservation Tab and then to the Historic Preservation Incentives programs.
Eligibility for the Preservation Tax Credit program is reserved for structures that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, such as properties in designated historic districts found in: Calumet, Laurium, Lake Linden, Mason, Eagle River, Hancock, Houghton, Painesdale, and others throughout the Keweenaw.

Did You Know?
The Keweenaw Peninsula of Michigan was home to one of our nation's first mineral rushes. Prospectors seeking copper travelled there in the middle 1840's, a few years before the "49'ers" sought gold out west. The story of this rush is told today at Keweenaw National Historical Park.
