Blue Island has recognized 74 landmark homes and commercial properties, including the Olde Western Historic District.
The Historic Preservation Commission makes recommendations on new landmarks to Blue Island’s City Council, which officially designates each property. Landmark properties are noted in town by a historic marker. Each landmark represents a significant historic connection to Blue Island or has exceptional architectural merit.
