Preservation Erie was excited to work with Wise Preservation Planning, an experienced historic preservation planning firm based in Chester Springs, PA. The firm’s principals, Robert Wise and Seth Hinshaw, have more than 30 years of experience with municipal historic preservation planning and have produced an impressive portfolio of 26 National Register nominations for individual properties, districts and landmarks, 12 municipal-wide surveys of all historic resources 50 years old and older, and approximately 10,000 documented historic resources.
The results of the 2014 historic resource inventory have been added to the State’s Cultural Resources Geographic Information System, a map-based inventory of the historic and archaeological sites and surveys stored by the Bureau for Historic Preservation. Web access to all of the historic resource data is open to the public at www.eriebuildings.info.
The last historic resource inventory or survey to be conducted in Erie County occurred in 1982.
