    Department of Historic Resources

    A permit from the Director of DHR is required for archaeological recovery of all human skeletal remains and associated artifacts from any unmarked grave, regardless of the age of the burial or archaeological site or ownership of the property. If the grave is part of a formally chartered cemetery, the recovery must also conform to the requirements of § 57-38.1 (“Proceedings by landowner for removal of remains from abandoned family graveyards”) and § 57-39 (“Proceedings for removal of remains and sale of land vacated.”). DHR’s application for a permit to allow the archaeological excavation of human remains was revised (January 9, 2015) to reflect changes to burial laws. The permit application form is available for use and can be downloaded as a PDF.

  • Donate a Preservation Easement

    Department of Historic Resources

    A conservation easement, which includes historic preservation and open-space easements, is a legal land preservation agreement between a landowner and a governmental or non-profit conservation organization (land trust) that protects the conservation values of a property, through perpetual limits on future development of the land. The easement may also include special protections for historic, cultural, natural, scenic, or open-space resources on the property. Most often, landowners voluntarily donate easements and receive some federal or state tax benefits for their charitable gift. Every easement is unique. The terms and provisions are negotiated between the landowner and the holder of the easement. The easement is perpetual and binds all future owners of the property. Except for rights specifically relinquished in the easement deed, the landowner continues to own, use, and control the land. Donation of a conservation easement is a complex process. It requires consultation with legal and tax counsel to ensure compliance with State and Federal tax code and guidelines for conservation easements.

  • Soil and Water Conservation Programs

    Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation

    Runoff from yards, streets, parking lots, farm fields and construction sites is the leading source of water pollution in Virginia. This runoff is called nonpoint source pollution because its sources are diffuse, and that's why everyone must work to stop it. DCR helps by teaching citizens lawn care techniques that keep pollution from reaching nearby streams and faraway waterways, such as the Chesapeake Bay.

  • Sponsor a State Historical Highway Marker

    Department of Historic Resources

    The first step in proposing a new marker simply requires that a sponsor submit an application to DHR. If you have an idea for a potential marker honoring an historical person, place, event, or institution in Virginia, be sure that the topic meets the first criterion: It must have significance beyond the local level and extend, at the very least, to a regional level within the state (e.g. the Shenandoah Valley, Northern Virginia, Tidewater, etc.). For additional guidance and information about topic eligibility, see 'Highway Marker Criteria' on our webpage Important Information for Marker Sponsors.
