The King William Association was established in 1967 as a non-profit corporation. Read the King William Association CHARTER to see the purposes and intent of the founding members. In 1967, the King William area was not yet a historic district and one of the newly created association’s goal was “To Make King William Area an Historical District”.

All three districts are equally protected by city ordinances and share a common theme of historical and cultural importance.
