First came getting added to the National Register of Historic Places, now come the signs.

The Riverhead Landmarks Preservation Committee will be mounting the first of 20 new signs Tuesday informing people that downtown Riverhead’s historic district — which was created as a town historic district in 2006 — is now on the National Register.

The first sign will be going up on Tuesday, Sept. 11 at 9:30 a.m. in front of The Riverhead Project restaurant on 300 East Main Street.
