The Albemarle County Historic Preservation Committee is charged with protecting the County's historic and cultureal resources. The Committee takes an active role in identifying and documenting structures of importance to the community.

The Historic Preservation Plan was adopted by the Board of Supervisors on September 6, 2000 and was prepared by a Historic Preservation Committee that was appointed by the Board in May 1995. The Historic Preservation Plan is an amendment to the Comprehensive Plan, and provides a framework for public involvement in protecting the community's historic resources. It reviews the County's history, and emphasizes education, financial incentives, and partnerships among all interest groups.
