Building a future for Deschutes County... by preserving its past.
The Deschutes County Historic Landmarks Commission (HLC), formed 1980, is part of a nation-wide network of groups dedicated to the preservation and celebration of our architectural heritage. The nine member HLC serves as a citizen advisory body to the Deschutes County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) and to the Sisters City Council. The role of the Commission is to help property owners preserve historically and architecturally significant buildings and districts while allowing modifications for contemporary use.
