National Register of Historic Places

The National Register of Historic Places is a list of properties acknowledged by the Federal Government as worthy of recognition and preservation. Authorized under the National Historic Preservation Act of 1996, the National Register is maintained by the Secretary of the Interior and administered by the National Park Service through the office of the Keeper of the National Register. Properties listed in the National Register include districts, sites, buildings, structures, and objects that are significant to their local community, State, or the nation.
