Listed LGBTQ Places

There are a small handful of properties listed on the National Register of Historic Places and as National Historic Landmarks for their association with LGBTQ History and Heritage. There are also many National Register properties and National Historic Landmarks that have LGBTQ history associated with them, but which is not mentioned in the nominations. Listed here are links to those places that are on the Register and listed as Landmarks for their association with LGBTQ history and heritage. For the other sites, many of which may make good candidates for nomination amendments, visit the map of places with LGBTQ heritage (the light blue placemarks indicate properties whose nominations do not mention their LGBTQ history)
