BROKEN ARROW, Okla. - Broken Arrow city leaders are taking steps toward preserving the city's history.
The city, along with the Broken Arrow Built Heritage Preservation Committee, is planning to take inventory of all the city's historic structures and sites. Officials said there are currently more than 100 historically significant homes, buildings, parks and other structures.
The inventory will help officials determine which places have historic value. A survey will also help property owners become eligible for grant funding if they want to restore one of the historic homes.
Officials said that with all of the growth Broken Arrow has seen recently, it's important to preserve the places that helped the city get to where it is now.
