The Heritage Documentation Programs (HDP) consist of the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS), Historic American Engineering Record (HAER), and Historic American Landscapes Survey (HALS).

HDP is part of the National Park Service’s Cultural Resources, Partnerships, and Science Directorate.
HDP is seeking college students or recent graduates with significant coursework in architectural history to assist in the documentation of historic sites. Interns will work closely with HDP historians to undertake fieldwork and on-site analysis, research, and writing of historical reports to HDP standards. Interns will work with a team of architects. The final documentation will be archived at the Library of Congress.

During this period, the interns will learn to conduct field analysis, research, and writing historical reports in conformance with HDP guidelines and the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Architectural and Engineering Documentation. The internship term will be completed as a fulltime position (40 hours per week) with work occurring primarily at the HDP office in Washington, DC.
