For those of you who attended the community meeting last Wednesday about our National Register application, you got a small glimpse of the extent of work that goes into preparing such an application and the steps of the process to be listed in the National Register.
The review board (Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Division of Historic Preservation and Archaeology) meeting where our application will be considered is Wednesday, July 26, 2006, at 1:30 PM, in the Indiana Government Center South Building, Conference Room A. The meeting agenda is on the DNR web site. Our application is available on the web site at
The full application can be viewed at the above web site and is listed under the title of “Eagle Township MPD”. The application is 28 megabites and took my computer a bit of time to open. It is 82 pages and contains pictures and maps, some with color.
If you signed the sheet at last Wednesday’s meeting requesting to receive a copy of the application, please download it from the DNR web site provided above. If that is not possible for you, then contact Cindy Lamberjack or me. Due to the length and complexity of the document, printing it for all the people who requested to receive a hard copy will be too expensive.
And, by the way, don’t just download it, read it or at least scan around in it. There is a wealth of information contained in the application, and I think there is a satisfying sense of continuity to feel so connected to those who walked and worked our lands before us.
