Jeremy D. Ammerman, as you might guess from the name, is of solid Pennsylvania German stock. He is the Architectural Historian for District 8-0. He earned his Undergraduate Degree in History with a Minor in American Studies at Penn State University, and a Master’s Degree in Public History at Shippensburg University. Mr. Ammerman started his work in the Cultural Resource Management field as an intern with the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission in 2005 and then spent time as a consultant surveying agricultural properties, as part of the development of the PHMC and PennDOT Agricultural History National Register Context. In December of 2010, he became a PennDOT staffer after leaving the Iowa SHPO office as the Architectural Historian for Disaster Recovery Efforts, following devastating 2008 flooding there. His main fields of interests are early German-American architecture, vernacular buildings, and historic farmsteads, probably a direct result of his heritage and upbringing.
