PEC empowers residents to protect what makes the Piedmont a wonderful place, and works with citizens to conserve land, protect air and water quality, celebrate historic resources, build smart transportation networks, promote sustainable energy choices, restore wildlife habitat and improve people’s access to nature. BACKGROUND PEC is planning to document, through deed research and mapping, several historically African-American communities in and around the Southwest Mountains area of Albemarle County. This work is part of a larger project to update and revise the existing Southwest Mountains Rural Historic District, listed on the Virginia Landmarks Register in 1987 and National Register of Historic Places in 1991, to more fully and accurately incorporate the African-American experience and recognize associated resources in the district. DESCRIPTION OF POSITION This position is a part time, temporary position that will last through 2023.  It is estimated that this person will work between 25 - 29 hours per week.

Previously completed deed research and mapping will be used as an aide to collect additional histories and information, eventually building a story about the history of these communities. The employee will organize calls, virtual and in-person meetings with landowners, community organizations and other interested parties to build relationships between PEC and the greater Southwest Mountains community. The remainder of the work will entail working with the Historic Preservation Coordinator to identify and document extant historic sites in these communities and organize site visits when possible. That information will also be used to identify and document extant historic resources and sites in those communities, ultimately culminating in Preliminary Information Forms to determine whether those communities may be eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.
