UGA to conduct cultural resource inventory of Dublin

Athens, Ga. – From Dec. 11-17, a team of graduate students from the University of Georgia’s College of Environment and Design will conduct a public service cultural resource inventory in Dublin.

The Public Service and Outreach project to be conducted by the students will include a survey area that includes the Downtown Historic District, and the residential Bellevue Historic District. The students are part of the Center for Community Design and Preservation’s FindIt! Program, a state-wide cultural resource survey program sponsored by the Georgia Transmission Corporation in partnership with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Historic Preservation Division.

During the week-long survey, the students will identity and document all cultural resources in the survey area which were built more than 45 years ago and that have historic significance and features. Resources can include: residential or commercial structures, religious structures and sites, cemeteries and other features. All collected data will be entered into Georgia’s Natural, Archaeological and Historic Geographic Information System inventory, the statewide database developed by Information Technology Outreach Services at UGA. Completed surveys are available to the public after approval from Historic Preservation Division and can be accessed at http://www.gnahrgis.org/.
