National Register Guide, Appendix B: Opposition to a Nomination

As fantastic as it is, the National Register of Historic Places can get a little confusing -- even for a seasoned pro. But fear not, because we have teamed up with Jim Gabbert, a historian with the National Park Service, to create our National Register Guide.

Appendix A of our National Register of Historic Places Guide focused on how the National Register’s idea of, and qualifications for, historic significance have changed over time. Our next episode continues the National Register Guide appendix, where we troubleshoot some of the finer points of the National Register.

Appendix B explains what happens when owners of a property oppose its nomination to the National Register.

We hope you enjoy the show.
