The National Register of Historic Places was created in 1966 by the National Historic Preservation Act. The Register is a list of national, state, and locally significant landmarks throughout the United States. Nominations preserve the history of these buildings, structures, and sites for future generations and also provide the opportunity to use historic tax credits for rennovation projects.
