Plaque Program

North Castle is home to a wonderful collection of historic properties.  Many played an important role in North Castle history, some are ordinary homes that have passed the test of time and others are important architectural examples.  The owners of these historic properties are often asked about the age of their property and will proudly state the year built.  Now, with the creation of the North Castle Historical Society Plaque Program, your property can state the year built for you.  

The long established Franklin Bronze Plaque Company is offering for sale a beautiful solid bronze plaque designed uniquely for the North Castle Historical Society.  As shown below, you will love the way this plaque looks next to your front door.  The oval measures 10" x 7" and is made of solid bronze with polished letters and a dark chocolate brown oxide background.  Each plaque is made to order in Franklin, PA, and will be shipped directly to you.  If you want a more elaborate piece to say more about your property, Franklin Bronze will be happy to work with you and will price it accordingly.

Please be aware that placing a plaque on your property will NOT make it a Landmark.  The plaque is for information only.  If you wish to landmark your property you will have to contact the North Castle Landmarks Preservation Committee and submit a request for their review.  You can find more information here.

If you need help determining the age of your property, the NCHS will be pleased to assist.  Email us at northcastlehistoricalsociety@gmail.com and provide your name, address and what you already you know about your property.  The price as of February 2019 for the 10"x7" plaque as shown above is $175.00 delivered.  This is the actual cost from the manufacturer and is not a fundraiser for the Society.  Franklin Bronze will arrange payment with you directly.

When you are ready to get your plaque we can connect you with the Franklin Bronze Plaque Company and help coordinate the purchase or you may go directly to their website http://www.franklinbronzeplaques.com/contact-us/place-an-order .  If you go directly, make sure you type "North Castle Historical Society" in the comments box on the order form.  Either way, please share a photo of your plaque with us!
