This survey report was completed at the request of the City of College Park and the Old Town Citizens' Association under the Planning Assistance to Municipalities and Communities Program. The purpose of the survey was to collect general data about the architectural and historical character of the original 1889 subdivision of College Park: today known as Old Town. The survey also resulted in preliminary findings about the potential eligibility of the survey area for listing in the National Register of Historic Places as an Historic District and for potential designation as an Historic District under the Prince George's County Historic Preservation Ordinance. The report contains general historic background, a general architectural description, recommendations on eligibility for historic district designation, and potential actions to follow this report. The report's appendices include sample architectural survey forms, a detailed building inventory, a glossary of building forms and styles, and the Historic Preservation Commission's Evaluation Criteria, Policies and Guidelines. The report is illustrated with maps and photographs.
