Historic Preservation

Opelika is unique with its collection of late nineteenth to mid twentieth century architecture, including the downtown business district and two residential districts. The mission of the City of Opelika and the Historic Preservation Commission is to save its most valuable historic resources; the buildings, places, and stories that define Opelika’s past, present and future for generations to come.

Opelika currently has over 756 properties on the National Register and 535 under Design Guidelines. The Opelika Historic Preservation Commission demonstrates the cultural, social and economic benefits of preservation as good public policy by providing that preservation and progress go hand-in-hand.  Anyone who visits Opelika will agree, the backbone of our community is our Historic Downtown.
