Celebrate the history of Santa Cruz County at the Annual Historic Landmark Award to honor recipients of the Historic Landmark “Blue Plaque” awards given throughout the prior year. The Blue Plaques are awarded to structures in Santa Cruz County at least 50 years or older that hold historic significance.
