Treatment of Historic Properties

State and federal agencies have the dual responsibilities of ensuring the appropriate treatment of resources that may be affected by state or federally assisted actions as well as maintaining those properties under their ownership.   Proper planning for projects that entail work on a historic resource or within a historic district helps to avoid or minimize adverse effects on historic properties.  BHP staff are happy to meet with state and federal agencies to assist in the development of inventories and management plans for resources under their ownership or operation. 

Useful resources and guidance on appropriate maintenance, care and treatment of historic properties include:

• SOI Standards for Historic Properties
• NPS Briefs
• Context Sensitive Solutions for Transportation
