National Register Guide, Appendix A: The Evolution of Historic Significance
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.
Episode 14 of our National Register of Historic Places Guide explores the possible outcomes of your nomination once it is examined by the National Park Service’s National Register team. Our next episode marks the beginning of the National Register Guide appendix, where we troubleshoot some of the finer points of the National Register.
Appendix A focuses on how the National Register’s idea of, and qualifications for, historic significance have changed over time.
We hope you enjoy the show.
