Welcome to the National Register of Historic Places WikiProject Division for selecting an article to become the subject of the Project's "Collaboration of the Fortnight"

Every two weeks an article comes along that the editors here collectively decide shall temporarily become known as the WikiProject National Register of Historic Places Current Collaboration of the Fortnight (aka the WP:NRHPCCOTF). Kidding. Sometimes the collaboration will last more than two weeks sometimes less. The key is to bring the article up to GA status or higher through the collaboration. More than one article can be collaborated on at once if enough editors are interested but it should go through the nomination process below to make sure the collaboration has enough interest.

Nominating articles[edit]

To this page:

To nominate an article, add, at the bottom of the list of candidates, filling in the name of the article and the nomination text (which should indicate why the article would benefit from a collaboration and what needs to be improved). Nominations can theoretically sit forever, until enough support comes along.

===[[Name of article]]===

Nomination text. ~~~~

To the article's talk page:

Add: {{WikiProject National Register of Historic Places collaboration candidate}}

Approving an article[edit]

If you support the nomination add your signature below the "Support" notation for the entry. Use the form # ~~~~.

If you oppose a nomination, do nothing. Though you are free to leave comments in the Comments section for the entry.


Join in on the discussion or express your approval. You don't even have to be a project member to participate in the collaboration process; the nominations or actual work load.

Fort de Chartres[edit]

I delisted this as a Good article on 21 February 2007, it isn't horrible, it just needs a little TLC and some less ambiguous sourcing to bring it back up to GA status. This project probably wouldn't take horribly long. IvoShandor 08:48, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

Auldbrass Plantation[edit]

The main house, stable complex and kennels were designed and built by Frank Lloyd Wright during 1940-1951 in Beaufort County, South Carolina. The plantation was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.

  • Ooooo, a stub!IvoShandor 00:00, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

Cathedral of Our Lady of Peace[edit]

Even reading the description, I am not sure A-Class is clearly defined. This isn't a GA, and I thought, since A is listed above GA that it was higher, possibly should be assessed B. Regardless, I see some huge, and glaring errors that would probably result in an article of this length not passing GA, I wouldn't pass it. Shouldn't be too much work, citing and cleanup seem to be the major tasks. I have posted a to-do list which I will add to. IvoShandor 07:10, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

  • I reacessed this article B, based on the criteria. I added some stuff to the to-do list that I saw at a glance, there are other problems surely.IvoShandor 07:30, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

National Historic Landmark[edit]

Another important project article that is sadly lacking. Almost devoid of content it is. IvoShandor 07:23, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

This is a really important article, linked from thousands of individual NHL articles, and it really needs to be better. doncram (talk) 16:52, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

Historic American Buildings Survey[edit]

Thousands of RHPs are documented with photographs and data pages on the American Memory website. Dogears 00:13, 25 March 2007 (UTC)

  • Comment: A most important predecessor to the NRHP. HABS is one of the earliest moves toward preservation in the U.S. An understanding of the NPS programs that preceded the NHPA of 1966 is essential if anyone is to understand why the NRHP exists as it does today. IvoShandor 16:24, 25 March 2007 (UTC)
  • Comment: I support the nomination, but HABS is actually a redirect to Heritage Documentation Programs, the National Park Service branch that administers not only HABS, but also the Historic American Engineering Record (HAER) and the Historic American Landscapes Survey (HALS). All three documentation programs are worthy of attention. Martindelaware (talk) 02:58, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
