Within the established period of significance (1876-1974), twenty-one landscape areas were surveyed and recorded for the Campus Heritage Landscape Plan. All surveyed landscape areas are identified as designated open spaces in the Campus Plan. A landscape survey form developed specifically for this study was designed to evaluate the character-defining features, level of integrity, associated era or eras, and condition.
All of these historic resources received rankings based on their historic significance and integrity, creating a hierarchy that allows for protection of the most important resources while allowing for needed new development.
