HUGO HISTORIC BUILDING INVENTORY

Hugo Historic Buildings Committee

The Hugo Historic Buildings Committee (Committee) is a committee of the Hugo Neighborhood Association & Historical Society (Hugo Neighborhood) with the opportunity for membership in the group wide open.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hugo is blessed with a rich heritage of historic buildings. The Committee is being formed to bring together all those who appreciate old buildings in our area and who want to learn more about them, from the casual admirer to the dedicated researcher. The aim is to collect and record information about Hugo’s historic buildings, and to share this information (e.g., through Hugo History Day, talks, group visits, training exercises, workshops, publications, web sites, etc.).

Do you own an interesting old building? Would you like to know more about its history? The idea is to preserve our cultural assets through documentation. The Committee might initiate its inventory with the Hugo Neighborhood’s 2002 "Inventory of Hugo’s Cultural Assets" and Kay Atwood’s 1984 "Josephine County Historical Resources Inventory".

Hugo Historic Buildings Inventory

The Hugo Historic Buildings Inventory (Inventory) will be conducted by neighbors on the Committee who drive every road in our community and record each building or building site that meets certain historic requirements. For example, historic buildings are usually at least 50 years old. Buildings less than 50 years of age must be exceptionally important to be considered eligible for inventory as a cultural asset. Committee members will never enter private property without permission. In addition to this fieldwork, members will research the history of the area in order to better understand their subject.

The purpose of the Inventory is to help local preservation advocates, land-use planners, economic development coordinators, and tourism promoters understand the wealth of historic properties in the Hugo community. Properties included in the inventory will have no restrictions placed on them, nor does the inventory require any level of maintenance by property owners. Rather, the inventory provides a foundation for identifying properties that may be worthy of preservation, promotion, recognition, and protection.

The Inventory could provide a basis for preservation and planning at all levels of government and for individual groups, or neighbors. Generally, the inventory includes properties that convey a sense of local historical significance. It is important to note that the inventory is not an end in itself, but a beginning for neighbors who value their community's history.

More Information

The preservation through documentation format will be decided upon by the Committee. An initial format for consideration will be the one used by Atwood.

Want more information? Contact an officer of the Hugo Neighborhood on how you can become involved in preserving our history through documentation, and especially on how to become a member of the Committee.
