National Register of Historic Places


Citizenship in the Nation Requirement 2a. asks us to do the following: Visit a place that is listed as a National Historic Landmark or that is on the National Register of Historic Places. Tell your counselor what you learned about the landmark or site and what you found interesting about it.

First we need to have an idea of where to find these places. Below is a spreadsheet found on the National Parks website of the registered historical places through the United States. After obtaining the list, being a visual person, I needed to see it on a map. I was amazed at how many pin drops there are!


Note: this list was obtained during the temporary government shut down, so I’m unsure if it is 100% accurate, but it’s a really good starting point to finding a place to visit.

Also, If you believe that a property should be on this list, check out this link to see the process of registration.
