WISAARD (Washington Information System for Architectural and Archeological Records Data)
WISAARD is the state's digital repository for architectural and archaeological resources and reports. Searching the database and data entry for archaeological sites, historic properties, and cultural survey reports are its main functions.
If you are a member of the public and would like to search for historic buildings or search the National Resgister database, simply go to wisaard.dahp.wa.gov. There is no need to create an account.
If you need to enter any information into Wisaard, Archaeology or Historic Property inventory forms, or a Survey Report, you will need to create an account. In addition, access to archaeological data and cultural survey reports are redacted from public viewing in accordance with state law. More information about access to this data can be found here.
The web address for WISAARD is: wisaard.dahp.wa.gov
