Event Details



The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission (PHMC) and the Lackawanna Historical Society invite you to participate in this upcoming workshop at the University of Scranton.

Cultural Resources Essentials

The Cultural Resources Essentials (CRE) four-part workshop series is designed to introduce the Pennsylvania Historic Preservation Office’s staff and to bring their partners together to learn more about the federal, state, and local historic preservation programs that the office manages and supports. From the National Register Program to Project Review under the National Historic Preservation Act and the PA History Code – and from the federal Rehabilitation Tax Credit Program to the PA Historical and Museum Commission's grant programs – we rely on our partners to provide us with the information we need to carry out our work effectively.

Professional consultants, planners, and local government staff and officials who attend all four CRE workshops will receive a certificate for completing the series and will be listed on the PHMC website. For more information, visit the PHMC website at http://phmc.info/historicpreservation and click on Cultural Resources Essentials in the sidebar menu.

The Basics

The Basics is the first workshop in the CRE series. It is designed to introduce you to the State Historic Preservation Office and the resources we offer. This workshop will provide you with an understanding of the following programs and skills:

  • Documenting historic properties and archaeological resources
  • The National Register process in Pennsylvania
  • Promoting cultural resources as community assets
  • The process for reviewing federal and state projects
  • Using the online CRGIS database and “Ask ReGIS”
