Downtown Historic Research

A downtown Washington historic research project compiled in 2012 and paid for by a Historic Resources Development Grant and the City of Washington, IA.

General information on the Iowa Site Inventory forms for downtown Washington

The Iowa Site Inventory forms and photographs on this website were prepared as part of a research/survey/nomination project in 2011-2012 funded by a Historic Resource Development Program (HRDP) grant (part of Resource Enhancement and Development (REAP) program) from the State Historical Society of Iowa for the nomination of the Washington Downtown Historic District. The project was primarily structured to develop the nomination for the downtown, with additional research on each building documented on an Iowa Site Inventory form along with at least one current photograph. The information on the Iowa Site Inventory forms dates to the August 2012 draft of the nomination. Boundaries and contributing/noncontributing status of the buildings may change slightly as the nomination moves through the approval process from fall 2012 to spring 2013. The final nomination in spring 2013 will be on file with the City of Washington Historic Preservation Commission and State Historic Preservation Office, and it will reflect any modifications to the final boundary and building statuses after the preparation of these Iowa Site Inventory forms.
