Evaluation Comments

“It really has opened all kinds of new aspects and resources to look at when dealing with National Register nominations. The class has been very thought provoking!”

“This seminar hit the mark. Always interested in hearing more discussion about how others answer philosophical preservation questions.”

“It provided insight to a different format of evaluating historic landscapes and provided a guide for evaluation.”

“This seminar was especially helpful to me because of the emphasis on practical applications of historic landscape planning. It wasn’t strictly theoretical; it was firmly based in reality and real experience.”
