State Historic Preservation Office

A Sampling of Architectural Surveys

Below are links to some of the architectural surveys, reports and maps held in the State Historic Preservation Office's inventory in Jefferson City.

Please note, some surveys were prepared by professionals and others by volunteers with a variety of skill sets. These surveys, maps and reports reflect the terms used to categorize significance at the time the surveys were made. Some of the surveys posted here have resulted in the listing of buildings or districts in the National Register of Historic Places. A district or building that may have been determined to have potential for listing in the National Register when the survey was made, may have been so altered since that point that a nomination is no longer possible. Similarly, properties determined not eligible for the National Register at the time of the survey may be eligible today.

To determine whether or not a property has been listed in the National Register, please check the relevant county page. To determine whether a specific property is eligible, please contact the SHPO.

Each link in the list leads to a PDF of a short survey report, a map or a survey. Many of the surveys are quite large — for best results, download each pdf to your computer (right-click and choose "save link as"). Adobe Reader software is required to read the materials. If you do not have a copy, visit the Help page.
