National Register Guide, Episode 13: Who Officially Nominates a Property?
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 the PreservationNation blog has teamed up with Jim Gabbert, a historian with the National Park Service, to create our National Register Guide.
Episode 12 of our National Register of Historic Places Guide examined a number of printed and online reference materials that should help you develop a well-rounded National Register submission. Episode 13 explains exactly who can officially nominate a property, and the path a nomination takes to get to the National Register.
This episode answers specific questions such as:
- What entities can officially nominate a property to the National Register?
- Which entities are responsible for nominating which properties?
- Does every state have a state historic preservation office?
- What is the role of each state's National Register Coordinator?
- What is the role of the State Historic Preservation Review Board?
We hope you enjoy the show.
