The National Register of Historic Places is pleased to promote awareness of and appreciation for the historical accomplishments of American women during Women's History Month with the Women's History Month web site. As part of the celebration, this site showcases historic properties listed in the National Register, National Register publications, and National Park units commemorating the events and people, the designs and achievements that help illustrate the contribution of women to the Nation's history. An essay on the architecture of Julia Morgan, the architect of the Hearst San Simeon Estate and one of the nation's first prominent female architects, can be found here.
