Preservation Documentation and Research


This course offers students a direct field experience in historic building survey and analysis using Newbury Street as the class study area. The course will develop building research skills through dating and studying architectural styles in Boston’s Back Bay. Each student will select a building on upper Newbury Street and prepare a sample building survey form with photographs and written significance for the National Register of Historic Places. In-class writing labs and discussions will support the required midterm field survey exam and the final historic building survey form.
