Brookings Commercial Historic District Additional Documentation
South Dakota, Reference Number: 88000029
Area of Significance: Commerce, Architecture
Period of Significance 1894-1940

This nomination is a 2020 update to a 1988 nomination where the period of significance remains the same but the inventory for each building has been revised and the context more fully developed to better justify significance under commerce and architecture. It is a good example of updating documentation for better use as a planning document. Additional documentation starts on page 175 of this 350-page nomination.

Oxford Historic District Additional Documentation/Boundar Increase/Boundary Decrease
North Carolina, Reference Number:
Area of Significance: Architecture, Commerce, Industry, Ethnic Heritage: Black, Social History
Period of Significance: 1825-1967

This nomination is a good example of a “complete rehaul” of an older nomination. The original nomination dates to 1988 and did not take into account some of the areas that contain what were then considered architecturally unimportant buildings that were associated with the town’s African American population. The new nomination includes a boundary increase to include these areas; a boundary decrease to acknowledge the demolition of a large industrial complex; and additional documentation to update the older inventory. The new nomination also includes a historical context and period of significance that is more inclusive and representative of events and conditions within the district. This new nomination effectively “replaces” the older one.
