Data Recovery Excavations Of The Carriage House, Greenhouse, And Greenhouse/Carriage House Well At Gore Place, Waltham, Massachusetts, J.N. Leith Smith, Christa M. Beranek, John M. Steinberg, Michelle G. Styger, Heidi Krofft, Rita A. Deforest

Andrew Fiske Memorial Center for Archaeological Research Publications

Excavations and ground penetrating radar at Gore Place in Waltham, Massachusetts, examined the original 1793 carriage house site, the 1806 greenhouse, and the greenhouse/carriage house well, all associated with Christopher and Rebecca Gore. The carriage house was moved in 1968, and its cellar was filled at that time. Mechanical removal of the fill in a portion of the carriage house cellar revealed that the lower portion of at least the rear (north) foundation wall is well preserved along with the cellar floor. Documentary evidence indicated that the carriage house cellar had been used for manure (compost) preparation, while the ...

Evaluation And Testing Of Brick Dust As A Pozzolanic Additive To Lime Mortars For Architectural Conservation, Sara B. Rogers 2011 University of Pennsylvania

Evaluation And Testing Of Brick Dust As A Pozzolanic Additive To Lime Mortars For Architectural Conservation, Sara B. Rogers

Theses (Historic Preservation)

The purpose of this research is to identify an optimal methodology for determining whether a given brick dust will produce a pozzolanic reaction when combined with lime. This property will be referred to as pozzolanicity. The research required a review of the properties of pozzolanic materials, the nature of the pozzolanic reaction, and a review of existing methods for determining pozzolanicity. A testing program performed at the Architectural Conservation Laboratory at the University of Pennsylvania was designed and executed to evaluate methods for testing pozzolanicity of brick dust to determine their efficacy. An evaluation of the tests was the final ...


Old Buildings, New Ideas: Historic Preservation And Creative Industry Development As Complementary Urban Revitalization Strategies, Rebecca C. Chan 2011 University of Pennsylvania

Old Buildings, New Ideas: Historic Preservation And Creative Industry Development As Complementary Urban Revitalization Strategies, Rebecca C. Chan

Theses (Historic Preservation)

The cultivation of the creative sector through the implementation of arts districts has been employed as an urban revitalization tool with increasing frequency in recent years, often occurring within historic building stock. In a departure from previous models of economic development in which workers are drawn to an area by jobs, footloose and often self-employed creative industry workers are more likely to locate based on quality of life and an area's so-called livability factors present in historic areas throughout the U.S.

Creative sector research and policy making stress the importance of character-rich places and the co-location of spaces ...

Philadelphia's 13th Street Passages: A Model For Urban Main Street Development, Kevin McMahon 2011 University of Pennsylvania

Philadelphia's 13th Street Passages: A Model For Urban Main Street Development, Kevin Mcmahon

Theses (Historic Preservation)

To a large extent, this thesis will investigate how 13th Street was successfully revitalized using a strategy similar to that of the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Main Street Program, a broadly applied framework for the revitalization of historic commercial centers in downtown communities nationwide. The success of the Main Street program, as outlined in its Four-Point Approach to revitalization, relies on early and strong community organization and small business partnerships. However, because there was such little concern among business owners on 13th Street, and because the City of Philadelphia was unable to take a leading role in redevelopment ...

Resurrecting Saint Louis No. 1 Cemetery: Integrating Archival And Field Research With Digital Tools To Spatially Analyze, Map, And Reinterpret Site Evolution And Morphology, Joseph C. Torres Ii

Theses (Historic Preservation)

This design thesis is a synthesis of two issues. Without the accuracy and assured quality if the first issue, the second one would have no value. The first issue is the culmination of rich historical material and analysis demonstrated at St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 in New Orleans (St. Louis 1). The second issue is the availability contemporary developments in how society collects, manages, and disseminates information, and how the internet has been a principal component in facilitating each element of managing information. This thesis utilizes St. Louis 1 as a platform to assess how managing and distributing information on ...
