Specialty Services | Historical

CORRE provided design services for this rural highway resurfacing and reconstruction project. Due to the presence of numerous older houses and farmsteads within the project limits, CORRE also completed Section 106 documentation. Specifically there were two properties of historic interest including a farmstead and log house. The farmstead had previously been deemed eligible for the National Register. The log home was built in 1843 and is one of the few, if not only, extant buildings in the area from the settlement period. 

Research by CORRE’s historians identified that the historic boundary for the farmstead was previously set in 1993 and was set approximately 25-feet off of the existing STH 20 shoulder. Analysis determined the proposed work in this area would be confined to the existing shoulder point and therefore the project would have no impact on the historic property. The log home while still in existence, had suffered major fire damage and was seriously deteriorated making its National Registry eligibility questionable. Similar to the farmstead, due to the scope of work adjacent to the parcel, no impacts were identified.
