Alabama Statewide Comprehensive Historic Preservation Plan


The Alabama Historical Commission works with the public to develop the Alabama Statewide Comprehensive Historic Preservation Plan. This plan guides the the direction of all preservation activities in Alabama, not just those of the AHC. It is revised every five years to comply with the requirements of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, et. Seq.


Each year, the AHC publishes and seeks comments on its Annual Work Plan This document lays out how the AHC will implement the plan for its federally funded activities. The work plan is posted on this site each year and is printed in the January-February issue of Preservation Report. Printed copies of the document are available by request. Contact Mary Mason Shell at 334.230.2691 or to request a printed copy.
