Welcome to the SHPO CRGRID

(Cultural Resource Geographic Research Information Display)


The Cultural Resource Geographic Research Information Display (CRGRID) is an easier way to access the South Dakota State Historic Preservation Office's (SHPO) historic sites information. Federal and state law requires the SHPO to undertake and maintain a statewide survey of historic properties. A statewide survey provides us with a permanent record of the state's historic properties and is a valuable source for historical research. The SHPO, federal agencies, state agencies, local communities, and private companies all use the information gathered by the survey as a planning tool to ensure wise use of the state's cultural resources.

DATA ACCURACY: The SHPO makes every effort to ensure the accuracy of the data in CRGRID. Some factors, however, are beyond our control. Properties may have been demolished or moved since surveys were taken, addresses may have changed, incorrect information may have been recorded on survey forms, or the information contained in CRGRID may be outdated. The data available in CRGRID is provided with the understanding that they are not guaranteed to be correct or complete. Conclusions drawn from, or actions undertaken based on, such data and information are the sole responsibility of the user.

The aerial imagery ranges from current to three years old. The aerial imagery is for reference only and should not be used as a substitute for field survey.

CRGRID is a research tool, not an up-to-the-minute inventory about every historic and/or architecturally significant property in the state. This tool allows researchers to investigate and review potentially significant properties according to the best data that is available in the SHPO's historic sites inventory. Please contact us if you notice any errors. Errors can be emailed to the SHPO at shpo@state.sd.us.

The inclusion of a property in CRGRID does not imply that it has special standing with the SHPO programs, unless it has been officially designated by the National Park Service as a National Register of Historic Places property. Conversely, the absence of a property from this database does not imply a lack of historic, architectural, or archaeological importance. Other historic properties may exist that have not yet been identified. Properties included in CRGRID are not automatically assured grants or any other assistance or protection.


Neither the State of South Dakota nor any agency or division thereof, nor any of their employees, contractors or subcontractors, make any warrant, express or implied, nor assume any legal liability or responsibility for the accuracy, completeness, usefulness, or merchantability of any information, apparatus, product, or process disclosed, nor represent that its use would not infringe on privately owned rights.
