STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT
CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT HISTORIC PLACES DOCUMENTATION
City of Montgomery, Alabama
Hired by the City of Montgomery, Alabama, PaleoWest recently documented over 2,300 buildings in neighborhoods where the historic Civil Rights Movement was born. PaleoWest assessed the significance of properties with respect to the NRHP and the survey was completed in accordance with federal and state regulations and undertaken to comply with the Alabama Historical Commission’s Architectural Survey Guidelines. Contextual research focused on the communities’ history, organization, and participation in the Civil Rights Movement in Montgomery, Alabama, and the impact these collective actions had on national awareness and change of practices that discriminated against African Americans.
“Presented with an extremely compressed schedule, PaleoWest succeeded in completing the field investigations on time. PaleoWest exceeded our expectations.”
