I'm considering expanding the historic designations on the site.  Several people have commented by e-mail that City of Fort Worth Demolition Delay structures are not shown on the site.  This is the lowest level of historic designation within the City.  Also, over the years, several people have commented that I have made no distinction of buildings that are located within historic districts over buildings that are individually designated.  A good example of this is most of the Stock Yards buildings are located within a National Register Historic District, but they are not individually designated on the National Register.  I have indicated all of these buildings as NR, meaning National Register in general.  If I make these distinctions, it will be as I edit building descriptions.  That process is going slow right now, but every so often, I am upgrading a page and editing it at the same time.  What do you all think?  Also, even though my listing won't be official, finding a designation on the City of Fort Worth's website is like pulling teeth.

As no one else has offered input as yet, this coming from a non-expert.  But it's not clear which "site" to which you are referring.  If you mean the home page of fortwortharchitecture, why not simply add  a link labeled "historical designation sites" and on the page you jump to have separate links designatiing particular historical districts (e.g., "Stockyards Historic District"), and on that page you jump to a listing of distinguished buildings within each labeled district.  Also, back to the home page, a broader link labeled "National Register" (or whatever) to go to a separate page identifying distinguished buildings across town that are either within or not a historic district.  Sounds like that's what you intend to do.

Johnfwd, that's essentially what I was planning to do.  The listings would have been on each section of town and within each building description next to the date.  I'm already calling out National Register, Recorded Texas Historical Landmark, and the two classifications of City of Fort Worth designations (Historic & Cultural Landmark and Highly Significant Endangered).
