Architectural Historian

Meet your obligations established under the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966

Beaver Creek Archaeology employs an Architectural Historian who meets the Secretary of the Interior’s Historic Preservation Professional Qualification Standards: a graduate degree in historic preservation with a cornerstone of coursework in American architectural history, in addition to a minimum of two years’ experience in research, writing, teaching, or interpretation in a historic organization, agency, or museum. These requirements ensure the performance of professionally credible work in accordance with the obligations established under the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966.

The Architectural Historian evaluates and assesses the built environment, determining the potential National Register of Historic Places eligibility of resources judged 50 years of age or older by employing archival and photographic research. This includes analyzing each resource for seven aspects of integrity (location, design, setting, materials, workmanship, feeling, and association) and evaluating its qualifications under four National Register criteria or eight criteria considerations.
