Chico Historical Geographic Information System (GIS). This analytical tool is designed to provide users an interactive historical research experience using modern mapping technologies. Primary source materials recovered from research repositories across California are presented using a unique interactive platform. The goal of this study is to transform historical documentation into an easily accessible format that can be interpreted across both space and time.
The study area for this project is Chico's oldest residential neighborhood known today as the South Campus Historic District, nominated to the National Register of Historic Places in 1991. The 166 parcels within the 23 blocks of the District are made up predominantly of university student housing, intermingled with a large office building currently occupied by AT&T, a Catholic Church, grade school and a small neighborhood commercial zone. There are 116 properties that are considered contributors to the historic integrity of the District. The neighborhood is 150 years old; the first lots were sold in 1862. The historic period under review in this study is 1862-1960.
