In this study, the terms that define a Rural Historic Landscape were examined. The examination of these terms determined the selection of the appropriate terms to identify the landscape of a Rural Historic Landscape. A case study of the Historic District of Mendocino, California was used to review the effectiveness of the landscape terms. The identified landscape elements in and around the Historic District were then evaluated using the National Register of Historic Places Standards. The result of the evaluation was the determination that a Rural Historic Landscape does exist separately from the Historic District as a landscape but a complete Rural Historic Landscape does exist with the inclusion of the Historic District. The results of this study are the creation of a template of landscape terms for identifying the existence of Rural Historic Landscapes in conjunction with places designated as historically significant that is applicable at a local, state and national level and a verification that a Rural Historic Landscape.
