Documented Historic Landscapes

Since HALS was established in 2000 to document our country's dynamic landscapes, much progress has been made in identifying and documenting historically significant designed and vernacular cultural landscapes. As documentation is submitted, the full list of HALS sites continues to grow. At the start of 2014, information on more than 450 sites was accessible on the Library of Congress’ website.

Below are a selection of documented HALS sites from across the United States that focus on a shared theme or feature, with links to the selected landscapes' documentation on the Library of Congress’ website. This page will be updated periodically to highlight different themes.
