Historic Resource Survey

Order Report »

PROJECT SUMMARY:

Phase I of a city-wide Historic Resources Survey, which included an inventory of 800 historic resources, collecting data on the age and character-defining features of each resource, and the developmental history of the subject neighborhoods. The survey was partially funded through an annual Historic Preservation Fund grant from the National Park Service and administered by the Georgia Historic Preservation Division. The historic resources, designed landscapes, and majestic oak-lined streetscapes within the project area are reminiscent of Albany’s unprecedented period of suburban growth, and its efforts to promote the beautification of the city; and are characteristic of evolving ideals in residential development and planning throughout the early to mid-20thcentury.

Milan Lodge No. 31

National Register Nomination

Order Report »

PROJECT SUMMARY:

The Milan Masonic Lodge No.31, located in Milan, Ripley County, Indiana was listed on the National Register in January of 2013. History, Incorporated authored the nomination, meeting all standards of the National Park Service. Completed in 1900, the Milan Lodge is the oldest, continuously active Masonic Lodge charter in Ripley County.
