The Recent Past: Strategies for Evaluation
September 15-16

Fairfax, VA

Examine nationwide trends in mid-20th-century houses and neighborhoods, with an emphasis on the evaluation of large suburban developments, construction methods, and house types and plans. Review era-specific factors that help to identify and categorize these buildings. Evaluate survey methodologies and consider the impact of neighborhood zoning, subdivision design review, urban renewal, and owner associations. Discuss how to determine the significance and integrity of resources when evaluating eligibility for federal and state programs, such as the National Register and the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards.

Presented by the National Preservation Institute in cooperation with the Department of Planning and Development, Fairfax County.
