Washington County Historic Preservation Plan

Washington County is developing a Historic Preservation Plan to address a full range of issues surrounding historic resources within the county.

The Draft Preservation Plan is available for public review and comment!

The Washington County Historic Preservation Commission (WCHPC) is embarking on a County-wide Historic Preservation Plan. We hope to:

  • Actively engage the public in conversations regarding historic preservation in our county.
  • Identify key historic context statements and guide future historic resource survey activity.
  • Develop strategies that will assist in protection and management of historic resources.

This web page will be updated throughout the Historic Preservation Plan process with meeting notices, relevant maps, and other resources. Upcoming Events will include dates, times, and locations of WCHPC and other public meetings. Meeting notes and reports will be posted for future reference. A map of historic resources, provided by the Idaho State Historic Preservation Office, is also presented for review and consideration.
Critical to the success of the Historic Preservation Plan is an understanding of issues and concerns county residents and visitors have regarding Washington County’s history (physical vestiges of that history in structures and sites, as well as intangible stories and memories) and how best to preserve our heritage for future generations. 

Thank you for taking our online survey! Check out the results of the map portion to see historic locations that are important to you.

Please review the draft plan and then submit your comments below.

Historic preservation plans are valuable tools for assessing preservation projects and programs.  This plan was commissioned by the Local Highway Technical Assistance Council  (LHTAC) and funded as a result of adverse effect resolution of the Section 106 review that occurred when the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) initiated planning for the Cove Road Bridge over the Weiser River. 

The plan was developed by the Washington County Historic Preservation Commission (WCHPC), along with preservation planning consultants, to address the full range of current issues surrounding historic resources within the county but outside of the City Limits of Weiser and Cambridge, Idaho.
