National Register of Historic Places: Completing National Register Nominations

Historic Preservation

Spring 2013

Andrew Dolkart, instructor

The National Register of Historic Places is the federal listing of buildings, districts and sites of historic significance. Professionals in the field of Historic Preservation are frequently called upon to complete National Register nominations as part of advocacy for the preservation of a building, in order for an owner to take advantage of historic preservation tax credits, or for other reasons. This mini-course examined the criteria for National Register listing and each student completed a minimum of one National Register nomination for a building the New York State Office of Historic Preservation is interested in seeing listed on the register.
