Burlington, IA

Services provided on this project:

Architecture Overview:

141 historic homes, churches and other historic buildings dot the Heritage Hill Historic District in Burlington, Iowa, overlooking the downtown and giving unique character to this Mississippi River town. RDG developed easily-understood, detailed Historic Design Guidelines for the City, describing appropriate and inappropriate treatments and offering guidance on everything from roofs, doors and windows to parking, signage, and building additions. Burlington’s Historic Preservation Commission can use these Historic Design Guidelines as a master source for educating the public, and to guide property owners on terminology, architectural styles, historically accurate treatments, and the difference between preservation, restoration, and rehabilitation.
