Tell the HAPC which places are important to you

Thursday, June 2, 2016

In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the National Preservation Act of 1966, the City of Oxford Historic and Architectural Preservation Commission is launching a social media campaign #ThisPlaceMatters #OxfordOH to bring awareness to important places in Oxford. The HAPC is encouraging all Oxford and Miami University community members and visitors to post photographs of places and hashtag them. This campaign encourages people to celebrate the places that are meaningful to them and their community. This campaign works on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Now, go out and let the world know what is important to you in Oxford!

Pictured above is the historic 1828 Smith-Munns House at 130 East High Street, which concluded the annual May historic walking tours. The Miami University Phi Gamma Delta (‘FIJI’) Fraternity chapter has been at this location for 60 years. The house was damaged by fire in 2013 then restored and upgraded by the fraternity in 2014-15. The original 1828 building was retained as part of the construction project at a key gateway intersection between Oxford Uptown and Miami University Campus.
