I guess my question is... How do you find out if a local treasure is on this list? If not, how do you get it on the list?
I have got the 4x5 and/or 5x7, the paper, and maybe one of these days, the time. I would like to ensure that the notable houses in my 'hood, including a Bernard Maybeck, and the original farm house of Brig. Gen. Henry M. Naglee are somehow documented as habs/haer examples.

If you looking at doing one, bear in mind that I did the darkroom part of one of these projects for a closed mental institution in Kentucky. There were over 2000 negatives to process and contact and the HABS people weren't sure it would be enough. It can be a lot of work. And they don't care about artistic license, they want nuts and bolts documentation. On the other hand, some people enjoy doing them very much.
