Redlining Virginia Preservation Dataset
This dataset includes all content and structural components for the project Redlining Virginia (http://redliningvirginia.org/). The purpose is to provide a description of the original project, a description of the preservation package, and any specialized software to open any component with the potential for reuse, reconstruction, or recreation.
Project Description: “Congress created the Home Owners' Loan Corporation (HOLC) in 1933 to rescue the real estate industry and restructure the home mortgage market. In the process, HOLC also strengthened residential racial segregation. HOLC promoted racial covenants on deeds to prevent mixed-race neighborhoods and created color-coded maps of American cities that made race a key element in assessing financial risk. This exhibit explores the actions of HOLC in Virginia and its impact on Virginia cities.”
