The WISAARD is a search tool and a data entry application. It is used to submit inventory forms and reports to DAHP, but it is also used to track the administrative record of all compliance projects that come through our office.
If you are a member of the public and would like to search for historic properties, click the image at right or use this link to the PUBLIC interface where you can search publicly accessible information without logging in. This includes all above-ground resources that have been surveyed and National Register-listed buildings, structures, and sites.
Access to archaeological data is redacted from public viewing in accordance with state law. More information about access to archaeological data can be found here.
If you need to enter any information into Wisaard, such as an EZ-2 form, Archaeology or Historic Property inventory forms, or a Section 106 project, you will need to enter Wisaard through the state's secure portal, Secure Access Washington. You will need to create a SAW account. Please follow these instructions:
