The central commercial and residential portion of the town of Blacksburg included in the boundaries of the Blacksburg Historic District has recently been surveyed for the Town of Blacksburg and its Architectural Review Board, with funding through the town's participation in the Certified Local Government Program of the Virginia Department of Historic Resources. The survey was intended to complete the inventory and evaluation of the above-ground architectural resources in the district and to provide local government and other planning agencies with information that may be used to support the successful development of local preservation planning tools such as design guidelines, historic overlay zoning, and design review. The slide show concentrates chiefly on the newly surveyed properties in the district, but includes some photographs of other important structures.
