The Chesterfield Historic and Landmark Preservation Committee (CHLPC) is a committee which works towards education, outreach, and preservation of Chesterfield's historic and archeological treasures. The CHLPC provides a mechanism to identify and preserve the distinctive historic, archeological, and architectural characteristics of Chesterfield which represent elements of the city's cultural, social, economic, political and architectural history.
Below is a collection of historic photos of people and places in our community.

The Committee also works towards fostering and encouraging preservation, restoration, and rehabilitation of the historic structures, areas, and neighborhoods, and thereby preventing future urban blight; and producing historical publications, newspaper articles, web sites, digital media, and public exhibits designed to promote interest in the history of the Chesterfield region and to provide public access to our repository of information and artifacts.
Members serve for a period of three years and are appointed by the Mayor.
