Description
This collection contains correspondence, research materials, brochures, maps, photographs, VHS tapes, and ledgers with block and lot information for the City of Carmel from various years. The materials were created by the Architectural Preservation Group, later called the Carmel Preservation Foundation. This group was formed in 1988 by mayor Ken White to come up with an architectural preservation ordinance. Comprised of 30 members under the leadership of preservationist and contractor Enid Sales, the group surveyed over 2,000 properties in Carmel. Approximately three hundred structures or sites and 4 districts were identified as having historic significance. CPF compiled their information from city files and took exterior photographs of each structure surveyed. CPF worked on numerous projects including the moving of the first Murphy House, which became the headquarters for the Carmel Heritage Society. In the early 2000’s the group disbanded due to differences in opinions about the role of the group in the community. Enid Sales died in 2008.
