Discover the Places that Make America Great!

The definitive guide to the country's National Historic Landmarks is now available. NATIONAL LANDMARKS, AMERICA'S TREASURES: The National Park Foundation's Complete Guide to National Historic Landmarks was written by S. Allen Chambers, Jr., with a foreword by Hillary Rodham Clinton.

National Historic Landmarks are nationally significant buildings, structures, sites, districts, and objects officially designated by the Secretary of the Interior. Chambers writes: "The diversity that characterizes our nation's heritage is documented by nearly 2,300 National Historic Landmarks...reflecting almost every imaginable important aspect of our nation's history. The range of properties represented in the program reflects changing perceptions about which events, ideas, and experiences have most influenced American history....They are places where significant historical events occurred, where prominent Americans worked or lived, that represent the ideas that shaped the nation, that provided important information about our past, or that are outstanding examples of design or construction." Read about such nationally significant places as the Mark Twain House (Connecticut), Helen Keller's childhood home (Alabama), the Little Tokyo Historic District (California), and the site of the first detonation of a nuclear device (New Mexico). Organized by state and county, the book describes each National Historic Landmark, and includes 380 illustrations.
