Division for Historic Preservation - Field Services Bureau (SHPO)

The NYS OPRHP's Division for Historic Preservation is headquartered at Peebles Island State Park in Waterford, New York. The Division encompasses two bureaus, the Field Services Bureau (FSB) which is undertaking this project, and the Bureau of Historic Sites. The remainder of the agency's administrative, historic site and park operations, including Information Systems, is headquartered in Albany or within OPRHP's 11 state park regions. The Field Services Bureau helps individuals and communities to achieve the social, economic, and environmental benefits associated with historic preservation. As the State Historic Preservation Office, the bureau administers programs authorized by the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, the New York State Historic Preservation Act of 1980, and numerous related cultural resource management laws. A network of historians, restoration specialists, archeologists, and planners is assigned to territories across the state overseeing the New York State and National Register of Historic Places (providing assistance in historic and cultural resource identification), administering state and federal historic rehabilitation tax credit and state historic preservation grant programs; assisting state and federal agencies to identify historic and cultural resources during project planning as part of the environmental review process; and supporting local preservation efforts through technical assistance, outreach, planning, and education. The bureau works with individuals, private enterprises, organizations, and governments to raise preservation awareness, instill in New Yorkers a sense of pride in the state's history, and encourage community preservation and improvement activities. The bureau is composed of five units: National Register; Technical Services; Archeology; Survey and Evaluation; and Community Outreach.
