Century Homes

About

The Century Homes Program celebrates the history of homes that are at least 100 years old. It has three goals:Illustration of oval bronze plaque with words "Century Home Edina, Minnesota" and year 1927

  • Historic Awareness: Interested homeowners share house information on a City webpage, doing as much or as little research as they wish using a provided resource list.
  • Community Connection: Applicants purchase and display a 5x7-inch oval bronze plaque that features the home’s construction year and aims to prompt neighborhood conversations.
  • Environmental Impact: Extending the lifespan of homes with repair and renovation avoids the significant carbon emissions embodied in home demolition and construction.

The program was created by Edina’s Heritage Preservation Commission, in collaboration with
the Edina Historical Society, and is run by City staff.

Applications will be processed on a rolling basis and celebrated annually during National
Preservation Month in May.
