Anniston is home to four distinct historic districts, a National Monument and numerous historic structures and sites. Preservation of these places is essential when communicating their stories to future generations.
May is National Historic Preservation Month. Do you have a favorite historic place in Anniston? Share it with us! Snap a photo and post on social media with the hashtag #ThisPlaceMatters and tag us @thecityofanniston on facebook and @helloanniston on Instagram.
Following are our historic districts listed on the National Historic Register:

The districts are under the auspices of the Anniston Historic Preservation Commission.
