Historic Register Designation
Each step in the process of designating historic resources will be examined, from the basic windshield survey, to the completion of a DPR 523 form, to a full National Register nomination. Participants will understand how to craft a nomination that is more likely to be designated and will also examine the basic structure and organization of standardized forms.
- Using case examples from past nominations, engage with best practices for nominating a site to the local, state, and national register.
- Identify the range of implications of designation, from financial incentives to potential design limitations.
- Use examples of nomination forms, including the DPR 523 and NPS Form 10-900 for National Register Nominations.
- Practice a number of field methods for documentation, including recordation that is required or recommended for nominations.
