Update historic resource inventories

Update and maintain municipal and countywide inventories of designated historic resources.

How we Appreciate



Comprehensive and updated inventories at the municipal and county levels would create a central source for information on significant local, regional, and nationally identified resources, helping maintain those resources as an integral part of communities.


The Chester County Historic Resource Atlas project is the baseline for this effort; however a longer-term goal would be to advance to detailed surveys of significant historic resources. A county maintained online interactive map would provide an opportunity to integrate local data with the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission's cultural resources database (CRGIS). The Chester County Planning Commission would lead this effort in partnership with municipalities and historic preservation organizations.
