Historic Site plaques

Historic Site plaques

The City recognises the historical significance of buildings, people and places in the district through a series of commemorative plaques. Community suggestions for historic site plaques are welcome.

The City has committed to a series of plaques on buildings, in parks and reserves, and at places of historic significance.

  • Heritage plaques placed on public and private buildings listed in the City’s Municipal Heritage Inventory (green plaques),
  • Memorial plaques placed in formally named parks and reserves that hold historic significance related to the person or group the park/reserve is named after (maroon red plaques), and
  • Historic site plaques for locations within the City deemed worthy of a plaque which don’t qualify for memorial or heritage plaques (blue plaques). These plaques are for sites, not buildings. There may not be any remaining infrastructure in place related to the historical significance of the site.
  • The Armadale to Fremantle Railway sidings have been recognized with a separate series of black plaques as a single project.
