Overview

CBJ will be conducting a historic building survey and inventory in the Juneau Townsite neighborhood beginning in March 2022. The project will involve researching the history of buildings 50 years old and older and photographically documenting the buildings’ exterior architecture. The boundaries comprising the survey will be 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.For the purposes of this project, the neighborhood has been divided into four quadrants.

The survey and inventory will be completed in two phases. Phase I will involve the survey of quadrants one and two; Phase II will be quadrants three and four. Depending on the results of the survey and the will of the neighborhood, a third phase of the project may be pursued. The third phase would be the nomination of the Juneau Townsite neighborhood to the National Register of Historic Places.

Project Funding

The project is being funded through a grant from the State of Alaska Historic Preservation Office. The grant is only for Phase I of the project. Each phase will require additional grant funding.
