Travis County Historic Resources Survey

Project Name: Travis County Historic Resources Survey

Project Location: Northeast Travis County and Webberville, Texas

Project Type: Historic Resources Survey

Owner: Travis County Historical Commission

Hicks & Company architectural historians conducted two historic resources surveys for the Travis County Historical Commission funded through the Certified Local Government (CLG) grant program. The surveys documented historic resources within portions of the county including Northeast Travis County and the Webberville area. The Commission divided Travis County into several survey areas as part of a multi-year phased survey project. The ultimate purpose of the survey initiative is to provide a comprehensive evaluation of historic resources throughout Travis County. Hicks & Company historians worked closely with the Travis County Historical Commission and the CLG staff at the Texas Historical Commission to best meet each survey’s specific planning goals. Fieldwork was conducted to identify, map, and photograph historic-age resources for each survey. Resources were assigned low, medium, or high preservation priority based on significance and physical integrity. All survey reports included a historic context, survey results, and recommendations for further study or designation.
