Online Map of Historic Sites Coming November 2011

In case you missed the July 13, 2010 article in the Columbia Tribune, an online map is in the works which will allow anyone to go online and learn all about Columbia’s 121 Notable Properties and 33 properties and areas on the National Register of Historic Places.

Deb Sheals, a historic preservation consultant, was chosen by the City of Columbia’s Historic Preservation Commission to conduct the work involved. In addition to Sheals’ local work, she works throughout the state and is one of the state’s most productive historic consultants, according to one state official.

The project is being funded by a $3,660 grant from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, with a $2,440 local match.

Each entry will include photographs, information on the architect, architectural style as well as information on famous residents or visitors.

This is going to be a terrific resource. I’m marking November 2011 on my calendar now!
