In an effort to enhance natural and cultural heritage initiatives within Douglas County, the Douglas County Board of County Commissioners approved the creation of the Douglas County Heritage Conservation Council in 2011. One initiative of the Heritage Council was to conduct a county-wide historic resources survey. Because surveying the County in one year was extremely expensive the Council implemented a systematic multi-year survey approach that would focus on one township at a time.
Over seven thousand buildings have been entered into Kansas Historic Resource Inventory (KHRI) over the last decade under the supervision of the Douglas County Heritage Conservation Council and with the assistance of SHPO staff.
