Lakewood Centennial Plaque Program

Plan Your Home's Party

Planning your party can be as easy as inviting your friends and family over for a casual get together or inviting the whole neighborhood to the celebration of century.

Is your house more than 100 years old? If so you should celebrate this milestone. You are the steward of Lakewood's history and we would like to help you let others know. With the development of the "Lakewood Century Home" program the Lakewood Historical Society has put together recognition through certificates and a window cling, potential house party ideas with 100 year old themes, and the option to purchase a "Historic Lakewood" plaque in beautiful cast bronze.

An aspect of this program is the "Make History in Lakewood" century home birthday party. We encourage homeowners to share their historic treasure with family, friends, and neighbors. We are here to help. We have invitation examples, a banner to display on your front porch, themes, vendor lists, fun facts, and much more.

As you celebrate your home share your pictures with us through Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, use the hash tag #LKWDhome100. Your home only turns 100 once. Don’t miss this opportunity to celebrate
your home, your community and our collective history.
