Project Summary

Clark County enlisted Peter Meijer Architect, PC to utilize a grant funded by the Washington Department of Archeology and Historic Preservation (DAHP) to create a historic context
statement for Clark County focusing on post-war development and architectural trends. Additionally,  a Reconnaissance Level Survey of forty-three properties in Clark Country constructed between 1950 and 1971 was completed. The surveyed buildings included a wide range of property types including residential, commercial, and institutional.

The intent of the historic context statement and survey is to raise public awareness about the significance of the county’s mid-century heritage, particularly the mid-century modern style, and the need for preservation of buildings from this period.

Currently, the draft context statement and survey forms have been submitted to DAHP for review.
