FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: ALABAMA HISTORICAL COMMISSION LAUNCHES HISTORIC PRESERVATION MAP OF HISTORIC PROPERTIES OF ALABAMA
Oct 19, 2020  -  After years of intensive planning and behind-the-scenes work, the Alabama Historical Commission (AHC) is proud to announce a new digital public resource – Historic Preservation Map Initiative. The AHC has been diligently working to convert the agency’s paper files associated with Alabama’s historic architectural resources into a web-based system utilizing geographic information systems (GIS) technology to increase the information’s accessibility to the public and to ensure their long-term preservation. This GIS database will be the first time that any researcher will be able to review the files of the AHC without making an appointment to search through the hard copy files of the Historic Preservation Division. This map will also enable the general public to review information about historic structures and places in their own community. To date, more than 129,000 documents have been scanned including survey forms, photographs, booklets, and maps.
