Established in 1997, this center’s activities draw upon the expertise of faculty members from the Butler Institute of American Art and several University departments, including History, Geography, Sociology and Anthropology, and Art. The Center for Historic Preservation is committed to making the most of existing resources by celebrating and safeguarding our nation’s historic architecture, industrial and engineering sites, and cultural resources. Students are included in all aspects of the Center’s activities, which include Historic American Building Survey/Historic American Engineering Record documentation, National Register and National Historic Landmark nominations, Historic Resource Surveys and Determination of Eligibility Reports, and transcribing oral history interviews. The Center collaborates with the Mahoning Sanitary District on the Youngstown Water Works, the Institute for History of Technology and Industrial Archeology, The Youngstown Historical Center of Industry and Labor, and the Mahoning Valley Historical Society. The Center has received external funding from The Ohio Historic Preservation Office, Battle of Homestead Foundation, Carnegie Mellon University, and the Ohio Humanities Council.
