On May 11, PSP doctoral candidates Michael J. Emmons, Jr. and Catherine Morrissey—on behalf of UD's Center for Historic Architecture & Design (CHAD)—presented two National Historic Landmark nominations to the National Historic Landmark Committee in Washington, DC.
CHAD Assistant Director Emmons and CHAD Associate Director Morrissey presented not one, but two, nominations to the National Historic Landmark Committee, at a meeting hosted by the National Park Service (NPS) in Washington, DC. National Historic Landmarks are far more rare than National Register nominations, requiring a site to retain national significance and a high burden of proof. Both CHAD nominations passed unanimously, and now await the signature of the US Secretary of the Interior. The first nomination was for the Waterford (Virginia) Historic District, a famous village that was remarkably preserved during the 20th century, retaining a 19th-century appearance (including farm fields surrounding it). CHAD's work provided a critically needed update to this district documentation, providing a comprehensive architectural survey for the State of Virginia, along with an innovative argument about Waterford's national significance. The second NHL nomination was for the Sampson-White Joiner Shop in Duxbury, Massachusetts, the only 18th-century woodworkers' shop to survive in the United States with its original workbenches, tool racks, and other features well-intact. Both nominations were unanimously approved.
You can find information about the NHL process on the NPS website, along with a list of the nominations from May 11-12, 2022 meeting.
Our congratulations to the CHAD team for their successful nominations and for their ongoing commitment to historic preservation!
