Review BoardMembers of the Indiana
Historic Preservation Review Board

The DHPA staff provides administrative and logistical support for the activities of the Historic Preservation Review Board. This board has responsibility for issues concerning the state’s historic and cultural resources.

Historic Preservation Review Board

The Indiana Historic Preservation Review Board is the committee that makes decisions on a number of preservation-related issues and provides public oversight to the programmatic and regulatory activities of the DHPA. For example, the Board officially nominates Indiana properties to the National Register of Historic Places. Once the Board approves an application and it is signed by the State Historic Preservation Officer, it is a “nomination” that can be sent to Washington to be considered by the Keeper of the Register. The Board also approves funding recommendations for the federal matching grant program, and considers applications for certificates of approval for state-funded projects that will alter, demolish, or remove historic properties.

The Board members are appointed by the governor for three-year terms. Five members are appointed for their expertise in either archaeology, architecture, architectural history, or history. The Director of the Department of Natural Resources, Indiana’s SHPO, serves as the Board’s Chair. The Board also includes and benefits from the DHPA division director and three citizen members whose interest and activities in historic preservation have gained recognition.
