State Historic Preservation Office
SHPO and COVID-19
With the implementation of Executive Order 2020-21, SHPO is impacted by the temporary requirement to suspend activities that are not necessary to sustain or protect life. To comply with this order, the SHPO facility is closed and staff will be working remotely, effective March 24.
SHPO staff will be accessible by email, but applications for Section 106 Review, Federal Historic Preservation Tax Credits, or National Register of Historic Places documentation cannot be accepted electronically at this time. We will not have access to mail until the office reopens. General inquiries can be sent to email@example.com. For the latest information regarding SHPO research requests, send an email to MSF-SHPOResearch@michigan.gov. We appreciate your understanding.
Governor's Awards for Historic Preservation
Each year the SHPO and the SHPO Review Board identify worthy recipients to receive the Governor’s Awards for Historic Preservation. The awards recognize homeowners who rehabilitate their homes; developers who transform underutilized historic structures; and academic institutions, archaeologists, nonprofits and local governments—among others—who strive to preserve Michigan’s important historic and cultural resources. Use the interactive map to explore all awarded projects.
