SURVEY DETAILS HISTORICAL PROPERTIES IN GALLATIN GALLATIN NEWS - JLD Preservation Consulting was hired by the city to perform a historic resources survey earlier this year. As part of the study, the firm looked at 229 buildings and provided recommendations for future preservation research and initiatives that could be pursued.
“The parameters (of the survey) were any structure that might be significant to the city historically,” Planning Assistant Marianne Mudrak with the Gallatin Planning Department said about the project. “It wasn’t limited to homes or anything in particular. It was just any structure really, and we have a lot of them because Gallatin is such an old city.”
The annual event will take place on Friday, Oct. 29 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Approximately 30 businesses are expected to participate, according to Donna Belote, organizer and executive director of Historic Downtown Gallatin.
“This was started many years ago as a safe place for preschool children to trick or treat without going out at night,” Belote. “It has just grown since then and become very popular in the community.”
