The Architectural Heritage Committee of WBI was formed in 1993 to publish an Architectural Heritage Tour of Warrensburgh, NY guide. In 1996 an Intensive Level Survey of Historic and Architectural Resources in the Hamlet was completed. This four hundred page compendium of text, mapping and photographic documentation would become an educational and community resource and planning tool, cultivating awareness and pride in the Town’s architectural heritage and historic past. A Multiple Resource National Register Nomination in 1997 lead to the State and National Register of Historic Places Listing for the Hamlet of Warrensburgh in 2001, a follow-up to the preservation work by the Warrensburgh Historical Society, placing the Warrensburgh Mills Historic District on the National Register in 1975. A Circa Plaque Program was then established to identify the 428 historic resources that comprise the district, the largest north of Saratoga to the Canadian border.
