OHP Webinar – Putting it in Context: Purpose, Importance, Process of Historic Contexts

Historic contexts are an essential foundational element for successful review, survey, and consultation of historic resources. This webinar will provide a look at some of the more common types of contexts, what format works best for specific reviews or surveys, and the resources available through the California Office of Historic Preservation (OHP) and others to help prepare a well-developed context. OHP staff also will discuss the office’s recently completed context, "Latinos in Twentieth Century California," the first statewide Latino context to be adopted by the National Park Service.
