In 1991, the City of Grapevine adopted a Historic Preservation Ordinance in an effort to protect the city's rich, unique architectural heritage. The ordinance created the Historic Preservation Commission and a process for designating historic districts and landmarks. The city has the Historic Township District, five local historic districts and individual residential and commercial historic landmarks.
