Trees planted on 5th Avenue

Trees planted on 5th Avenue

    On January 26, the city joined with the Historic Preservation Commission, Residents of Old Wilmington (ROW), Wilmington Tree Commission, and the Bellamy Mansion to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Historic Preservation Commission. The anniversary was marked by planting 50 live oak trees along historic 5th Avenue. The trees were purchased by ROW and were planted by city staff.

Representatives from community organizations, churches and local officials were on hand for the plantings. The Historic Preservation Commission held a reception at the Bellamy Mansion following the event.

HPC, in concert with other local preservation organizations, is holding a year-long celebration with a series of events including competitions, exhibits, tours and presentations. Created in June 1962, the HPC is appointed by City Council to “protect, conserve and safeguard the character and heritage of the city.”
