National Register of Historic Places Nominations
The National Park Service (NPS), in partnership with a wide variety of other government agencies, non-profit organizations, and other entities, is in the process of nominating properties associated with El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro to the National Register of Historic Places. The nomination process involves identifying properties of high integrity with a significant association to El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro. Associated properties eligible for the National Register promote the significance of the trail in our communities. A listing on the National Register may offer additional protection features to historic sites and trail segments.
A key feature of the research process is the completion of a National Register of Historic Places Multiple Property Documentation Form (MPDF) for El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro, which has been submitted to the Keeper of the National Register. The MPDF provides historic contexts and significances for properties. And it also identifies property types, including descriptions, resource significance statements, and nomination requirements for various trail properties - both historic sites and historic trail segments.
