The Washington State Historic Property Inventory Database contains thousands of records documenting historic properties across the state that meet the age criteria of being constructed 50 years or more in the past. As such, this repository contains volumes of information revealing important insights into the built environment of Washington. The Inventory plays a critical role in cultural resource management and sound historic preservation planning activities around the state. The inventory forms, survey reports, maps, photographs, sketches and other document types held in the Inventory are irreplaceable for a variety of users including: property owners, cultural resource consultants, researchers, government agencies, tribal governments, planners, and project designers. By first exploring inventory holdings, researchers are able to gain important information for project planning, environmental assessments, and land use management, as well as local growth management planning projects.Note that architectural surveys fall into two general classifications: intensive and reconnaissance levels.  Both types have a place, depending on the amount of information to be collected, the time and budget available, and the geographic dispersion of the resources.The Washington State Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation (DAHP) is mandated by federal and state statutes to house and maintain these records. Records held in the Inventory document a variety of property types in one of the following general categories: buildings, structures, sites, districts, and objects. These categories conform to those property types considered eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places and the Washington Heritage Register.As steward of the Inventory, DAHP is responsible for managing this large and complex archive. In this role, DAHP strives to make the information as efficient and useful as possible.  Several staff members devote their full time and energy toward this end. Of late, major progress has been made to place the records into electronic databases and to scan the original documents to create electronic images. This transformation into a digital format is designed to speed the retrieval of a specific record while at the same time helping to conserve the original documents. In addition to enhancing the ease and efficiency of data retrieval, DAHP wants to strengthen the value of the Inventory for project planners and researchers in this age of high expectations for immediate turn-around times.Discussion of the state's historic built environment would not be complete without acknowledging a growing public interest in historic properties constructed from the post WWII ear.  Such properties include those associated with America's roadside culture including motels, drive-in restaurants, gas stations and automobile dealerships.  However, interest in the recent past goes beyond popular culture to include modernist skyscrapers, shopping centers, churches and suburban housing tracts.In 2003, DAHP took the lead by launching the state's first attempt to spark the discussion and appreciation of the built environment that best represents the last 50 years.  The "Nifty From the Last 50 Initiative" launched at the State Historic Preservation Officers Award Ceremony, involves a grass roots approach to identify and document such sites for future reference in state and local databases.DAHP staff is available to assist with the initial assessments of eligibility of properties to the registers and to provide guidance in the completion of register nominations.  For more information contact Michael Houser, State Architectural Historian at (360) 586-3076 or email: Michael.Houser@dahp.wa.gov.This dataset is an inventory of Historic properties on record at the Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation (http://www.dahp.wa.gov). These data are a work in progress and are constantly being updated. More information about these resources is available on DAHP's web portal WISAARD.
