Recognize   important places 

The National Register of Historic Places is the federal government's official list of sites and structures important to American history on the local, state, or national level. A site listed on the National Register is considered worthy of preservation by the United States government. 

The National Register program uses three components to decide whether a property is eligible to be listed: historic significance, historic integrity, and historic context. Additionally, a property must meet at least one of the four National Register Criteria, defined as follows by the National Park Service:

  • Criterion A: Properties that are associated with events that have made a significant contribution to the broad patterns of our history

  • Criterion B: Properties that are associated with the lives of persons significant in our past

  • Criterion C: Properties that embody the distinctive characteristics of a type, period, or method of construction, or that represent the work of a master, or that possess high artistic values, or that represent a significant and distinguishable entity whose components may lack individual distinction

  • Criterion D: Properties that have yielded, or may be likely to yield, information important in prehistory or history

Belloni Research Consulting is available to complete historical research, architectural descriptions, or statements of significance needed for the National Register Registration Form, or to complete the form and the nomination process in its entirety. 

I encourage both individuals and organizations interested in nominating a property to the National Register to contact me to discuss their goals.
