Hello there - I am looking for examples of ordinances that require the protection of stone walls (property line boundary markers) during site planning or subdivision. Thanks.

Evanston, Illinois, has stone walls on either side on a major road (Ridge Avenue). The best example that pops into mind is in Ireland/England, due to the Enclosure act and the preexisting stone walls that surround the country side.

Maine has a few stone walls that marked the end of farms, but I'm not sure as to where.

Hope that helps,

Josh

Try contacting the National Trust for Historic Preservation, or see what information they have regarding the protection of cultural landscapes. ASLA (American Society of Landscape Architects) may also be a source of information.

Lexington, KY has many stone walls, and I believe that they have a preservation plan and perhaps an ordinance. Also, there is a preservation plan for Kings Canyon National Park in CA for the stone walls, curbs, gutters, and other historic road elements (roads through trees).
