A press release from the McHenry County Historical Preservation Commission:
WOODSTOCK, ILLINOIS — On behalf of the McHenry County Historic Preservation Commission, staff of the Public Service Archaeology & Architecture Program of the University of Illinois (UIUC) will be conducting a survey of historic structures in unincorporated McHenry County.
This project updates the previous surveys conducted during the 1970s and 1980s.
Exterior photographs will be taken of each pre-1950 structure.
Townships being surveyed during this project include Alden, Chemung, Dunham, Hartland, Hebron, Marengo, Riley, and Seneca.
The survey will give us a better understanding as to what historic structures still exist in our county and to portray this “slice-in-time” historically as we look at how these old farmsteads and rural sites have evolved through time.
Participation of local residents knowledgeable about the historical background of such structures and sharing this historical information would be greatly appreciated.
If you have any questions, or wish to verify this project, please contact Sean Foley at the above address or phone number.
You may also email him at email@example.com if you prefer.
The County Sheriff has been notified of this field work as well.
Thank you for helping us to better understand the historical heritage of McHenry County.
