College Hill has 60% historically contributing homes north of 15th street and 75% contributing homes south of 15th  This makes the neighborhood eligible to become a historic district.  One of the advantages of being a designated historical district is tax credits.  For more information contact Tim Paris with the city of Topeka at 785-368-3013.
