Group DescriptionThe National Register of Historic Places is the USA's official list of districts, sites, buildings, structures, and objects worthy of preservation. As of 2005, the list includes approximately 79,000 entries, including many icons of American culture, history, engineering, and architecture.
Administered by the National Park Service, the Register was authorized under the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966. Its goals are to coordinate and help groups such as the National Trust for Historic Preservation identify and protect historic sites in the United States. Occasionally historic sites outside the country but associated with the United States (such as an embassy) are also listed.
The Register automatically includes all National Historic Landmarks as well as all historic areas administered by the National Park Service.
