This invaluable tool is used for preservation, planning and outreach.The database is available online and is a searchable collection of photographs, architectural descriptions and historical information of more than 1,450 structures within the historic district.The data currently available is based on a survey conducted by Ball State students and contains more than 3,250 photographs with multiple pictures of most structures. Information will be added to the database as it becomes available.
