Historic Resources & Surveys

Austin contains a rich array of historic resources. While some historic resources have already been identified and designated at the local, state, and/or national level, others remain unidentified. There have been piecemeal efforts to conduct historical surveys in the past, but a comprehensive survey has not been conducted since 1984. Since that time, some of the surveyed properties have been significantly altered or demolished, while other properties have reached an age where they can now be evaluated for their historic significance. The Austin Historical Survey Wiki provides a means for surveying historic resources, while centralizing information for easy reference.

Downloads previously available through this web page have been moved to the Austin Historical Survey Wiki User Guide. See this Wiki User Guide page for a listing of previously conducted professionals surveys.
