The National Register of Historic Places is pleased to promote awareness of and appreciation for the historical accomplishments of African Americans during African American History Month.  Visit our new African American History Month web-site, featuring 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 African American contributions to American history. The National Register of Historic Places' Underground web travel itinerary, Aboard the Underground Railroad , now provides links to on-line publications and model nominations to assist researchers in documenting and preparing National Register nominations for properties associated with the Underground Railroad.

 Underground Railroad Resources in the United States Theme Study was prepared by the National Historic Landmarks (NHL) Survey program.  It includes a history of the Underground Railroad, identifies historic property types, establishes registration requirements for National Register listing and NHL designation and includes an annotated bibliography.   Exploring a Common Past: Researching and Interpreting the Underground Railroad  provides a historic context for the Underground Railroad, information on using primary sources, a case study that tracks an escape from Virginia to Canada, and an extensive bibliography.  Researchers can also download copies of model NHL nominations for Rokeby, Addison County, Vermont; F. Julius LeMoyne House, Washington County, Pennsylvania; and the John P. Parker House, Brown County, Ohio.

The on-line publications and model nominations are available at:
