The South Dakota State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) has contracted with the cultural resources firm JMT, Inc. to survey historic architectural resources in Brule and Lyman Counties. The survey project is funded by a grant through the National Park Service from the Historic Preservation Fund.

The surveyors will conduct background research and do fieldwork to take notes on and photographs of architectural resources that may be eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. All fieldwork will be conducted from the public right-of-way. Surveyors will then add records to SHPO's CRGRID system and provide copies of their survey documents and a final report to SHPO. Records on CRGRID can be accessed at CRGRID GIS Map.

Through the input form linked below, or by emailing, the public is invited to provide the South Dakota SHPO and JMT, Inc. with feedback on the planned survey project, including any research materials or historic sites that the surveyors should be aware of while planning their fieldwork. The questions are to help prompt ideas for recommendations of buildings or structures to survey. These might also include significant landscape features, or objects like historic sculptures or monuments. Please include an address or other location description for each suggested building or structure. Surveyors may choose not to or not be able to visit a given recommendation. However, this survey project is not intended to identify or record sites for which location information should be restricted, such as archaeological sites or places of traditional indigenous cultural or spiritual practice. Please do not respond with location information for such sites.

Please submit responses by September 20, 2021.
