The Juneau Townsite Historic Building Survey and Inventory was completed September 2023


CBJ completed Phase 2 of a historic building survey and inventory in the Juneau Townsite neighborhood in September 2023.  The project involved researching the history of buildings at least 50 years old or older and documenting the exterior architecture with photographs.  The surveyed area’s boundaries were the north side of Second Street to the north side of Sixth Street and the east side of Calhoun Street to the west side of Harris/Gold Street.   The overall project was divided into four quadrants.  Phase 1 completed the survey of quadrants 1 and 2 with reports listed below.  Phase 2 completed the survey of quadrants 3 and 4 with the final combined report listed below.

With Phase 1 and 2 complete, a third phase may be pursued. The third phase, if completed, aims to nominate the Juneau Townsite neighborhood to the National Register of Historic Places.
