Historic Preservation Projects

As part of their regular course work, students in the Historic Preservation class (HIST 493/593, ARTH 493) have researched and nominated a variety of Shenandoah Valley buildings and structures to the National Register of Historic Places. Here students inspect the attic of an early 19th-century Rockingham County dwelling (top) and document an outbuilding on an early 19th-century Rockingham County farm with measured architectural drawings and photographs (bottom). Scroll down to see more student projects.
