Christopher H. Marston

Christopher H. Marston has been an architect with the National Park Service’s Historic American Engineering Record (HAER) since 1989 and has led HAER teams recording a variety of sites, from steel mills to parkways, railroads, canals, and bridges. He has served as a co-editor for three publications: Guidelines for Rehabilitation of Historic Covered Bridges (HAER, 2019), Covered Bridges and the Birth of American Engineering (HAER, 2015), and America’s National Park Roads and Parkways: Drawings from the Historic American Engineering Record (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2004). He has presented on his work at HAER at a variety of professional conferences and serves as an active member of several national preservation organizations, including the Society for Industrial Archeology (Past President), Preserving the Historic Road (planning committee member for the Morristown, NJ, conference in 2000), and the Transportation Research Board’s Committee on Historic and Archaeological Preservation in Transportation. A graduate of the University of Virginia and Carnegie-Mellon University, Christopher worked for an architect in Hoboken, NJ, in 1987-88, before a HAER summer job documenting steel mills in Homestead, PA, changed his career path.
