National Register of Historic Places
A significant achievement for downtown Boyne City was its listing on the National Register of Historic Places. The downtown historic district includes the 100 and 200 blocks of Water and Lake streets, parts of Main Street between Lake and Park, the 100 block of South Park, and the local Pearl Street Historic District. The National Register is the federal government’s official list of properties that are deemed to be worthy of preservation because of their importance in American history and culture. National Register designation provides recognition and, most importantly, allows property owners to take advantage of Federal Historic Tax Credits to maintain and improve their buildings.
