The Vermont Archaeological Inventory (VAI) is a database tool maintained by the Vermont Division for Historic Preservation (VDHP) recording Vermont’s rich archaeological heritage. The VAI contains over 4,000 individual records of documented archaeological sites. These sites span 13,000 years of Vermont history, from Paleo-Indian camps to 19th-century mining districts and 20th-century underwater wrecks.

Preservation in Federal Funding

Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (Public Law 89-665 U.S.C. 300101) requires federal agencies take into account the effects of their undertakings on historic properties. It is the responsibility of the federal agency involved in the project to initiate consultation with the Vermont Division for Historic Preservation (VDHP) as the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) and fulfill the requirements of Section 106.

Preservation in Act 250 (10 VSA Chapter 151)

Established in the spring of 1970 by the Vermont Legislature, Act 250 is Vermont’s Land Use and Development Act. The Act 250 program provides a public, quasi-judicial process for reviewing and managing the environmental, social and fiscal consequences of major subdivisions and developments in Vermont.
