Many concerns encountered in nominating a historic shipwreck are similar to those addressed in nominations for other types of historic vessels. Preparers of National Register nominations for shipwrecks should consult Section 1 of this bulletin. A final word about documentation concerns the potential of a historic vessel to be a National Historic Landmark. If the vessel has national significance, this should be documented in the nomination. Designation as a National Historic Landmark will require that the property be studied by the National Park Service. Usually this occurs as part of a major theme study. A well-documented National Register nomination for a potential National Historic Landmark quality vessel will facilitate its review by National Park Service professionals.
