This site is great!! Search here for all of your state's HABS/HAER/HALS documentaon that has been completed. You can download everything at high resoluons - completely copyright free! When you or anyone from your state donates drawings, historical reports, and or large-format photographs to HALS, their documents will be transmied to the Library and end up here

This is an shortened version of a format for documenting the history. You will note that it is different from the National Register Guidelines allowing for recognizing sites of memory that may have lost considerable integrity over the years, especially relevant to cultural landscapes.
