2014 HALS Challenge: Documenting Landscapes of the New Deal

HAER drawing of Turn-of-River Bridge
For the 2014 HALS Challenge, we invite you to document landscapes of the New Deal. People from every state are hereby challenged to complete at least one HALS short format history to document the landscapes created during the Great Depression. Many of these landscapes remain in all 50 states, but their history may go unnoticed. The Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS, a companion program to HALS, and the sole surviving New Deal program) was created 80 years ago in 1933, the same year as the CCC!

31 July 2014: Submission deadline
