May is Historic Preservation Month and the community is invited to celebrate it in Downtown Castle Rock. Learn fascinating stories of the people and places that helped shape the unique character of our Town with events throughout the month.
The Town’s Historic Preservation Board has partnered with The Castle Rock Historical Society and Museum on events planned throughout the month to celebrate our community’s rich history.
Ways to celebrate Historic Preservation Month:
