Massachusetts cities and towns with their historical property surveys online

Several cities and towns in Massachusetts have conducted surveys of their historic properties. Unfortunately, the reports have been typed onto forms, which are assembled into binders and typically found in the library or city hall.

A few cities and towns have worked to move these documents online.

This short document contains links to those that have done this based on their responses in May 2008 to a post to the 750-member MassHistPres list maintained by the Massachusetts Historical Commission.

Sherborn
http://home.comcast.net/~sherbornhistcom/AssetSurvey.htmBackground on Sherborn from Ed Perry:
 The 1981 Survey data was a Xerox copy of the original hand typed survey datathat is in the Sherborn Library. This was contained in four 3" three ring binderswith each page stored in a clear acetate folder for protection. This was scannedusing a Visioneer OneTouch model 7000 flatbed scanner and converted to digitaltext using OCR software included with the scanner. The error rate in the OCR  process was substantial and required extensive manual correction of errors in thedigitized text. The 1999 Survey Update data was on a Zip disk in microsoft Access 2000database form and, since I did not have the Access database software, requiredmanual cut and paste of data into a form that could be html coded. Initially the coding was manual, following html 2 rules. Later I acquiredFrontPage 2000 which was subsequetly upgraded to FrontPage 2003. Theseapplications greatly facilitated the coding process. In addition to the OCR errors a large number of errors were also found in theoriginal material, ranging from typos, spelling and gramatical errors to factualdata errors, some substantial. Also, additional new information is found from timr to time. A decision was made early in the process to combine the 1981 and 1999updates into a single file for each property, correcting all errors, and incorporatingall new data.
