Building Knowledge

Historical/Archival Research & Documentation

This is one of the most fun aspects of our work here at McDoux Preservation, and something about which we’re passionate, thorough, and meticulous.

Not sure whether your building might be eligible for landmark status, or what makes the most sense for your individual situation? We can provide guidance to help you identify your goals and decide how best to proceed with your documentation or designation project.

Our portfolio of services includes:

Historic designations for individual properties and districts:

  • National Register of Historic Places
  • State historical markers
  • Local landmarks

Documentation for the Historic American Buildings Survey and Historic American Engineering Record (HABS/HAER), including historical reports, archival photography, and measured drawings

Chain of title/ownership history/deed research

Historic resource surveys and inventories

Heritage Education

Before launching McDoux Preservation, Steph McDougal spent many years developing educational programming for K-12, college, and adult learners. We understand how to create exciting, engaging learning activities for all age groups and can help you develop bring history to life through a variety of media – on site, online, and in the classroom.

We also have extensive experience working with state academic content standards and can help you align your educational programming with your state’s requirements, making it easy for teachers to justify incorporating field trips and in-class activities into their lesson plans.
