WHO ARE WE? The Tallahassee Trust for Historic Preservation is a local nonprofit dedicated to the preservation of our historic and cultural resources and to providing opportunities for the community to learn about and enjoy our local history and heritage.
WHAT IS A SURVEY? An architectural survey provides an inventory of the built environment by documenting structures. The survey will record construction dates, note architectural details, identify styles or types, note alterations, assess current conditions, provide brief histories and photo documentation.
WHY THE FAMU ADDITION? The FAMU addition neighborhood has a rich history. The neighborhood continues to experience change over time, as well as development pressure as the needs of the university continue to grow and evolve. We believe it is important as a community to document the architecture and history of the neighborhood.
GOALS & BENEFITS Survey and documentation of the historic resources within the neighborhood connects us to the preservation of minority heritage, history, and culture. Communities and neighborhoods which have the ability to document and actively manage their historic resources have a voice in their community’s future. Further, survey and documentation provides a tool for education, it provides a documented, tangible link to the history and heritage of the neighborhood, and helps to preserve the original character of buildings and streets.
