Documenting approximately 1,400 structures in Hammond, Louisiana - to be added to the Louisiana Historic Structures Inventory.
MORE INFO ON SURVEYS:
This survey will record data on approximately 1,400 structures in Hammond. Survey work will be done in conjunction with Kelly Calhoun of Calhoun Preservation. Information gathered will follow the Louisiana Historic Structures Inventory Form. To see a sample of this form, CLICK HERE.
The data collected will result in getting clarity on what Hammond's historic building stock looks like and will document historic structures for posterity that were previously undocumented. Ultimately, the intention for this survey data is to modify the boundaries of the current Hammond National Register Historic District and make it larger. This is to allow more income-earning properties in Hammond to be eligible for historic tax credits. National Register Historic Districts have no restrictions or guidelines. Check out THIS FACT SHEET if you're curious about how National Register Historic Districts differ from Local Historic Districts.
