Grants and Contracts Details


The University of Kentucky Program for Archaeological Research proposes to conduct a historic architectural survey of the Piner Tract in Boone County, Kentucky. Field work will be conducted by staff meeting the Secretary of the Interior’s Professional Qualifications Standards for Architectural History. The survey will proceed in accordance with the following: Specifications for Conducting Fieldwork and Preparing Cultural Resource Assessment Reports (Kentucky Heritage Council 2001); How to Apply the National Register Criteria for Evaluation (National Park Service 1990); and the Kentucky Historic Resources Survey Manual (Kentucky Heritage Council). Fieldwork will consist of an examination of each resource 50 years of age or older, preparation of a site plan illustrating the spatial relationship of the structures within each parcel, and digital photography of each structure, both historic and non-historic. All individual buildings and structures on the site will be documented on Kentucky Historic Resources Inventory Forms (the Individual Buildings Survey form, KHC 2011-1, and the Barns/Outbuildings Survey Form, KHC 2006), in accordance with the Instructions for Completing the Individual Buildings Survey Form (KHC 2007-1). Digital photographs will be taken of the exterior of each resource, including each elevation as well as any visible and noteworthy architectural features. Resources will be closely examined on the exterior, in order to not only fully capture the current condition of the historic resource, but also to determine any changes in orientation, configuration, major additions and renovations and any integrity altering modifications. A UTM will be taken for each resource using a handheld GPS device; the sites will then be mapped on quadrangle maps. In addition to the Kentucky Historic Resources Inventory Forms, a cultural historic report will be prepared that will include a historic context, overview of the resources, and determination of eligibility for each resource. Archival research conducted for this report will include historic maps, newspapers, and chain of title if necessary. The results of the archival research will be incorporated into the historic narrative and description section on each survey form.
