History

Independence National Historical Park (INDE) was authorized by an act of Congress on June 28, 1948, and was formally established on July 4, 1956, "preserving for the benefit of the American people as a national historical park certain historical structures and properties of outstanding and national significance…associated with the American Revolution and the founding and growth of the United States." Located in the Society Hill, Old City, and Germantown neighborhoods of Philadelphia, Independence National Historical Park encompasses not only such famous sites and artifacts as Independence Hall, Congress Hall, and the Liberty Bell, but over twenty other structures, gardens, squares, and cemeteries.

Historic architects have played a pivotal role in the creation and development of Independence National Historical Park. The first historical chief architect for the park, Charles E. Peterson, was appointed in 1950. Peterson was an established architect with the National Park Service (NPS) before coming to INDE, famous for creating the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) in 1933. Peterson and his team were tasked with the restoration of such structures as Independence Hall, Old City Hall, Congress Hall, the First and Second Banks of the United States, the Merchants' Exchange Building, the Bishop White House, the Dilworth-Todd-Moylan House, and the site of Benjamin Franklin's residence. The architects conducted historical research to identify the original structural elements and appearance of each building in order to develop recommendations for restoration. Their findings were incorporated into Historic Structures Reports alongside the work of INDE's historians, museum curators, and archeologists. Following approval of their recommendations, the architects drew up specifications and drawings, working closely with the restoration specialists and construction contractors to ensure that the desired restorations were achieved.

The architectural program at INDE has been administered through a number of NPS offices over the years. In 1954, Peterson was reassigned to head the historic structures section of the newly created Eastern Office of Design and Construction (EODC), and Charles S. Grossman was appointed Chief Architect at INDE in his stead. In 1958, however, responsibility for INDE's restoration and its architectural staff were transferred to the EODC Historic Structures Section. Notable park architects such as Penelope Hartshorne Batcheler, Henry A. Judd, and Lee H. Nelson carried out architectural projects in conjunction with the NPS revitalization program "Mission 66". Henry Judd and later Lee Nelson assumed oversight of INDE's restoration projects following Peterson's retirement in 1962. For a period of time in the 1960s, the park's architectural program was administered by NPS offices based in Washington D.C., and by 1972 the Denver Service Center managed the EODC, where Penelope Hartshorne Batcheler supervised restoration and reconstruction projects in anticipation of INDE's 1976 Bicentennial Celebrations. The park service re-established the position of historic architect in 1980 and was later part of the Cultural Resource Management Division. In 2011 the historic architects office became part of the park's Asset Preservation and Maintenance Division, where the motto "Maintenance is Preservation" is a guiding principle.

Since the park's inception, almost 150 architects, student architects, and interns have participated in the research and development of building restoration and maintenance at the park. The park's architects continue to preserve, maintain, and restore the park's many historic buildings.

Materials include architectural and archeological reports, Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) reports, restoration reports, historical research files, correspondence, news clippings, drawings, and photographs. In some cases, the records pre-date the founding of the park.

Subseries A: General Materials, 1943-1967
This subseries is arranged alphabetically.
This subseries contains records related to architectural planning at the park on a broad scale. Materials include Advisory Commission and Architectural Advisory Committee meeting minutes, reports, correspondence, weekly newsletters, and legal documentation. In some cases, the records pre-date the founding of the park.


Subseries B: Records From Specific Sites and Locations, 1938-1992, undated
