National Register: Yosemite's List
At Yosemite National Park, there are more than 60 National Register properties with nearly 600 individual resources that have National Register status. Yosemite is home, also, to five National Historic Landmarks. Some properties have been determined "eligible" for listing, including both individual properties and historic districts. A determination of eligibility is an official finding, which requires State Historic Preservation Office concurrence, that a property meets the criteria for eligibility in the National Register without actually listing the property in the National Register. Upon further documentation, a property that is determined eligible can be listed on the National Register. Find Yosemite's National Register properties listed below with attached PDFs of the original nominations.

Did You Know?
Descending from Yosemite Valley, the Merced River becomes a continuous cascade in a narrow gorge littered by massive boulders. Dropping 2,000 feet in 14 miles, canyon walls rise steeply from the river and have many seasonal waterfalls cascading down to the river.
