National Registry Of Historical Landmarks

21 posts in this topic

I propose a new category of National Historical Landmarks.

this site is just the ones in the New Jersey registry as an example

http://tps.cr.nps.gov/nhl/result.cfm

the variables could be what state, city, & type (Building, district, site)

I vote yes to this one. Would be a great companion to the state Historic Markers.

National Historic Landmarks are much more restrictive than National Register of Historic Places. Land marks are listed here There are less than 2500 locations that are landmarks.

 

The National Register of Historic Places include all Landmarks plus other locations deemed historic. There are currently nearly 80,000 places on the registry. The site for the registry is here

All Historic Landmarks are on the Historic Places list. So a about 2500 are on both lists :-)

When creating the category I would make it super clear what the difference is between the two lists (places and landmarks). I think this was up for a vote awhile back and I voted against it because it seemed like the same thing. If I had known better, I would have voted yes.

 

I definitely support the category, now that I know that they are two different things.

Actually all Landmarks are also Places by definition. But not all Places are Landmarks. The qualifications for the landmark designation are much more stringent than for the National Register of Historic Places. Qualifying for the National Historic Landmarks designation automatically lists the site on the National Register of Historic Places.
