Integrity and Condition Assessment - Savannah National Historic Landmark District

The National Park Service (NPS) recently commissioned a study to assess the integrity and condition of the Savannah National Historic Landmark District. Designated by the Secretary of the Interior in 1966, the Savannah National Historic Landmark District is one of America's oldest and most prominent National Historic Landmarks. The National Park Service monitors the condition of National Historic Landmarks to ensure that they continue to possess the historic qualities for which they were designated. In the case of the Savannah District, those qualities include the Savannah Town Plan (or Oglethorpe Plan) and the impressive collection of architecturally significant buildings built upon the plan.

The study, prepared by New South and Associates, documents, in narrative and graphic formats, major changes that have occurred within and adjacent to the district since its designation in 1966. The effort involved research, a reconnaissance survey, photographic documentation, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) analysis and mapping, on current and future threats to the Savannah National Historic Landmark District.
