Historic Property Surveys


Historic property surveys assist a community in identifying and gathering information on its historic resources.  The survey typically includes an inventory of resources and an evaluation of their eligibility for the historic register.  Historic resources help create a sense of place within a community and provide insight into its past.  This information is critical in planning efforts to preserve what is vital to the community's unique sense of identity. 

Phoenix does not have a survey that looks at historic resources citywide.  Below is a link to a number of surveys that have been conducted for various areas or property types within the city.  Some surveys are older and may be outdated.  Others  were limited in their scope.  For more information regarding eligible properties within the city, please contact the Historic Preservation Office.
