Danforth Historic Resources Survey

Syracuse-Onondaga County Planning Agency
Syracuse, NY

In 2013, the City of Syracuse retained EDR to assist them to conduct a neighborhood historic resources survey in the former Village of Danforth, which is presently part of the Southside neighborhood. This survey was noteworthy for its emphasis on recruiting and training volunteers from the neighborhood to identify significant historic buildings. EDR designed a project-specific Historic Resource Inventory Form and accompanying Historic Resource Visual Field Guide for the Village of Danforth Historic Resource Survey. Utilizing these tools, volunteers documented over 350 buildings in the neighborhood. The results of the survey are more fully described in EDR’s Historic Resource Survey Report.
