Hosted by the Historic American Landscapes Survey (HALS) Subcommittee of ASLA’s Historic Preservation Professional Practice Network (PPN)
This presentation will explain how National Register of Historic Places nominations can facilitate the preparation of documentation for the Historic American Landscapes Survey (HALS) short form, used for the HALS Challenge and other applications. Speakers include National Park Service staff representing the National Register and HALS, staff of the Wisconsin Historical Society, and the National Council of Preservation Education (NCPE) intern who completed the work. Background on the NPS programs will be provided by Barbara Wyatt and Chris Stevens. Laura Grotjan, University of Wisconsin graduate student and NCPE intern, will describe the HALS documentation she prepared using National Register nominations. Peggy Veregin, historian with the Wisconsin Historical Society—Wisconsin’s state historic preservation office—will discuss a companion project that involved establishing a database of landscape architects who practiced in Wisconsin from the beginning of the profession until 1980.
