National Register of Historic Places


National Historic Landmarks

The National Historic Landmarks program was established to identify and protect places possessing exceptional value in illustrating our nation's heritage. The Department of the Interior examines the National Register of Historic Places for sites that "possess exceptional value or quality in illuminating and interpreting the heritage of the United States." Two Pennsylvania State Parks are National Historic Landmarks.

National Register of Historic Places

The National Register of Historic Places is the nation's official list of cultural resources worthy of preservation. Authorized under the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, the National Register is part of a national program to coordinate and support public and private efforts to identify, evaluate, and protect our historic and archeological resources. Properties listed in the Register include districts, sites, buildings, structures, and objects that are significant in American history, architecture, archeology, engineering and culture.
