The Old King's Highway Regional Historic District was established in 1973; it is the largest historic district in the nation. The district is designated as the area north of Route 6 (the Mid Cape Highway) from Sandwich to Orleans. Each Town has their own Historic District Committee. The Town of Barnstable's Old King's Highway Historic District Committee reviews applications for any change in the exterior of buildings and structures, fences and signs, and applications for new construction or demolition. The Town of Barnstable OKH Committee considers the historical value and significance of existing buildings, and all applications are reviewed for general design, proportion of building elements, texture, materials and color. Settings, site design and layout and relative size of buildings are also taken into consideration.
Applications are reviewed for their aesthetic appropriateness to the historic integrity of the district, neighborhood and setting.
