Site Inventories

Inventories of Archaeological, Architectural and Historical Sites

One of the functions of the Idaho SHPO is to maintain the state inventory of archaeological and historical sites. The inventory is comprised of sites identified through survey efforts of Federal and State agencies and Idaho cities and counties.  Approximately 51,000 archaeological sites and 33,000 architectural and historical properties have been recorded.  An ongoing effort is the electronic maintenance of this data to ensure efficient access and service to researchers.
