Join friends, family, local history buffs, and neighbors to celebrate the 2024 Blue Plaque Awardees.

Honoring the structures and the people who make them special, this event is for anyone who loves Santa Cruz History. Blue Plaques are awarded to structures in Santa Cruz County that are at least 50 years old and hold historic significance. From old banks to iconic Victorian-era houses there's always more to discover around every corner. Hear from local historians and community members as they dive into interesting research and personal stories related to the Blue Plaque recipients.
