Minnesota Historic Property Record (MHPR)

The Minnesota Historical Society, the Minnesota State Historic Preservation Office, and the Minnesota Department of Transportation’s Cultural Resources Unit developed the Minnesota Historic Property Record in order to establish an archival format for the documentation of historic properties.


ARCH3, LLC wrote the book on photographing historic properties in Minnesota. Literally.

We authored the Minnesota Historic Property Record’s Guidelines for Photographic Documentation. The Guidelines specify the photographic materials and archival processes required for MHPR recordation and provide assistance with preparing documentation packages that meet the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Architectural and Engineering Documentation.
