National Historic Landmarks Program | National Park Service
National Historic Landmarks (NHLs) are nationally significant historic places designated by the Secretary of the Interior because they possess exceptional value or quality in illustrating or interpreting the heritage of the United States. Today, just over 2,500 historic places bear this national distinction. Working with citizens throughout the nation, the National Historic Landmarks Program draws upon the expertise of National Park Service staff who guide the nomination process for new Landmarks and provide assistance to existing Landmarks.

National Register of Historic Places Official Website--Part of the National Park Service, U.S. Department of the Interior
The National Register of Historic Places is the official list of the Nation's historic places worthy of preservation. Authorized by the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, the National Park Service's National Register of Historic Places is part of a national program to coordinate and support public and private efforts to identify, evaluate, and protect America's historic and archeological resources.

What We Do
• Review nominations submitted by states, tribes, and other federal agencies and list eligible properties in the National Register
• Offer guidance on evaluating, documenting, and listing different types of historic places through the National Register Bulletin series and other publications
• Help qualified historic properties receive preservation benefits and incentives

• National Register Fundamentals - covers everything from how to determine if your property is eligible, to how to contact your State Historic Preservation Officer to start a nomination, to the listing process, to the effects of listing
• Nomination Forms
• Publications- National Register Bulletins and other guidance on all aspects of the nomination process
• Federal Preservation Laws and Regulations(36CFR60 - specifically for the National Register of Historic Places)
Search the National Register!

The National Register of Historic Places is a treasure trove for professional historians, scholars, and anyone curious about American history. You can explore its riches three ways:

• Search a list of properties
• Read an ever-growing inventory of full nomination forms online - we are currently digitizing our files and adding them to our online database
Fast Facts
• The more than 90,000 properties listed in the National Register represent 1.4 million individual resources - buildings, sites, districts, structures, and objects
• Almost every county in the United States has at least one place listed in the National Register
• Listing in the National Register is the first step towards eligibility for National Park Service-administered federal preservation tax credits that have leveraged more than $45 billion in private investment and National Park Service grant programs like Save America's Treasures and Preserve America.
• 30 historic lighthouses have been transferred to new owners for preservation and public use
