Encyclopedia > Contributing property

Broadly defined, a contributing property is any property, structure or object which adds to the historical intergrity or architectural qualities that make a historic district, listed locally or federally, significant.[1] Different entities, usually governmental, at both the state and national level in the United States, have differing definitions of contributing property but they all retain the same basic characteristics.[1][2] Historic districts are generally comprised of two types of properties, contributing and non-contributing.[3]

Specifics

More specifically, a contributing property is any building, structure, object or site within the boundaries of the district which contributes to its historic associations, historic architectural qualites or archaeological qualites of a historic district. Another key aspect of the contributing property is historic integrity. Significant alterations to a property can damage its physical connections with the past, lowering its historic integrity.[3] This article is about the built environment. ... Archaeology or sometimes in American English archeology (from the Greek words αρχαίος = ancient and λόγος = word/speech) is the study of human cultures through the recovery, documentation and analysis of material remains, including architecture, artefacts, biofacts, human remains, and landscapes. ...


Contributing vs. non

The line between contributing properties and non-contrbuting properties can be fuzzy. In particular, American historic districts nominated before 1980 have few records of the non-contributing structures in the districts.[3] State Historic Preservation Offices conduct surveys to determine the historical character of structures in historic districts. Districts nominated to the National Register of Historic Places after 1980 were generally nominated with a list of those structures considered non-conributing.[3]
