VIEWS FROM THE ROAD. A COMMUNITY GUIDE FOR ASSESSING RURAL HISTORIC LANDSCAPES

This is a practical handbook to guide local land trusts, planning agencies, and other community organizations in preparing inventories of rural historic resources based on scenic roads. It provides a rational basis for land conservation efforts by integrating visual and aesthetic qualities of rural road corridors with the history of land use. The book focuses primarily on two case studies, one in Georgia and Florida and one in Kentucky, while presenting a grassroots methodology for: defining and determining visual resources; creating data inventories through collection techniques; conducting surveys to select, rank, and apply criteria for landscape classification; determining protection options; and formulating corridor management plans.
