National Register Guide, Appendix D: Common Nomination Errors

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 C of our National Register of Historic Places Guide explored the ins and outs of amending an existing National Register listing. Our next episode continues the National Register Guide appendix, where we troubleshoot some of the finer points of the National Register.


Appendix D outlines some of the most common errors people make when submitting a nomination to the National Register.

We hope you enjoy the show.
