Forms and Guidelines

National Register properties enrich our understanding of local, state, and national history by representing significant events and developments, the contributions of notable people, important engineering and architectural styles, and information about history or prehistory. Although the listing is primarily honorary, it can increase resource recognition and preservation, aid in future community planning, and provide limited protection for historic resources. Listing may also provide access to additional funding sources for the rehabilitation or restoration of a property.
