Welcome to the Kansas Historic Resources Inventory (KHRI) database! The KHRI is administered by the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) at the Kansas Historical Society (KSHS) and is a searchable inventory of the state’s surveyed historic properties. This interactive database is intended to serve as an education and reference tool for preservation professionals and the general public, whether registered or non-registered users.
Registered Users are able to enter new or edit existing survey information into the survey database. In order to become a registered user, click here; registration is open to anyone.
Non-Registered Users can search all approved inventory files in the database and print information but cannot enter or edit information. Users may choose to search for specific properties or may use more general criteria to search for categories such as building types and architectural styles. The database can also be used to simply explore the surveyed historic resources in a geographic area.
Surveying is the process of identifying and gathering data on historic resources. It includes recording basic physical and historical information about a property, photographing it, and drawing a site plan. In other words, survey is a means of documenting historic resources and does not automatically result in the listing of a property in the National Register of Historic Places or Register of Historic Kansas Places. For more information on surveying, click here.

Be sure to refer to the Tutorial for detailed instructions on entering information into the KHRI. Contact Amanda Loughlin, Survey Coordinator at KSHS (survey@kshs.org or 785-272-8681 ext. 226), with any questions, and thanks for contributing!
