Historic Building Preservation
Protecting the Rich History of Mentor
Mentor, nicknamed the “city of choice,” is bustling with more than 50,000 residents today, but its roots date back nearly 225 years. The Old Village District is filled with charming century homes, and the Matchworks building—built in 1868—still stands as a mixed-use space on Station Street. James A. Garfield, our 20th president, purchased a home for his family in Mentor in 1876. That home is now open to the public as a house museum and is one of the most accurately restored 19th-century presidential sites in the country.
These buildings and homes have special meaning for the city of Mentor, and it is so important they be preserved for future generations.
