Historic District Survey

The Barrington Historic District was first surveyed in 1984, by Hasbrouck Hunderman Architects, on behalf of the Barrington Area Historical Society. Shortly thereafter, the Society successfully applied to the U.S. Department of the Interior to have Barrington’s Historic District listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In 2001, the Village of Barrington enacted zoning regulations to require historic preservation within the District, formally establishing it as the Historic Preservation Overlay District.

To provide an updated reference document for properties in the Historic Overlay District, the Village commissioned Thomason and Associates, nationally recognized historic preservation planners, to conduct a new survey of the District. Field work and the draft survey were presented to the Village in early 2005. The Village’s Architectural Review Commission and Planning, Zoning and Economic Development Committee completed a joint review of the survey in December of 2005.

The Village recently passed amended zoning regulations and Design Guidelines to preserve the historic appearance of buildings in the District while allowing certain updated material replacements consistent with the design, dimension, profile and texture of the original exterior materials.  In addition, all detached garages have been classified as Noncontributing.

The document provides certain basic information for each of the more than 350 properties in the Historic Overlay District:

  • Address
  • Approximate date of construction
  • Shape of the principal building
  • Architectural style of the principal building
  • Contributing or Noncontributing classification of each building
  • History of Distinctive Features of the Structure(s)
