THE RANCH HOUSE IN GEORGIA: GUIDELINES FOR EVALUATION
As more and more Ranch style homes reach the 50-year mark, preservationists have struggled to evaluate and identify these houses as eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. Through a partnership with New South Associates, the Georgia Transmission Corporation, the Georgia State Historic Preservation Division and the Georgia Department of Transportation, a set of guidelines were produced to address issues of context, period of significance, typology, geography and setting of Ranch Houses in Georgia. The guide provides step-by-step procedures for researching, recording, and evaluating Ranch Houses, and identifies sources for future research. This publication is one of the first in the nation to address the evaluation of post WWII housing and will no doubt serve as reference for states across the nation facing similar struggles with this important architectural style from our recent past.
