INVENTORY OF HISTORIC PROPERTIES

image: SHPD GIS mapSHPD maintains an inventory of all known historic properties in Hawai`i. Approximately 38,000 properties currently comprise this inventory.

The inventory expands at the rate of approximately 1000 new sites per year. Records on these properties are included in over 3,500 archaeological reports housed in SHPD's library and open to the public.

The division is now in the process of computerizing a simplified inventory so it will be accessible via the State's blue ball graphic, link to SHPD's GIS siteGeographic Information System. The inventory is the primary tool utilized in making historic preservation decisions in Hawai`i.

Certain historic properties found in the inventory receive the additional distinction of placement in the blue ball graphic, link to SHPD's  Hawaii and National Register of Historic Places page Hawai`i and National Register of Historic Places. Such placement is a major step in making them eligible for Federal, State and County historic preservation incentives. All properties listed in the inventory receive the same level of regulatory protection, regardless of their register status.

The division maintains the Hawai`i and National Register of Historic Places and processes all nominations to either register. For such purposes the blue ball graphic, link to Hawaii Historic Places Review Board pageHawai`i Historic Places Review Board is administratively attached to the division.
