Historic Asset Survey Project
Collin County has initiated a project to locate and catalog any and all historic sites in the county. The survey is being conducted using the criteria of the National Registry of Historic Places and Collin County will be the only county to undertake such a project on a county-wide basis. By making historic information available on the Web, residents, newcomers, corporate relocators and others will have a better appreciation of our history and growth.
Data for the historic sites will be collected by volunteers and made available, at a later date, through the Collin County Historical Commission. Locations will also be entered in the county's GIS Interactive Map to provide the location of each site. By clicking on the site, a visitor will get a specific location by address, GPS, or UTM (Universal Transverse Mercator) and an actual view of the site. Many of the sites will also feature links to additional narrative data. Potential sites will include cemeteries, buildings, event locations, and other historically significant locations.
WHS is working to put Wylie on the map. We need individuals who are interested in Wylie's history to collect information on these sites. If you would like to get involved, download the HASP Volunteer Packet for more information or attend one of our monthly meetings.
