The National Park Service's National Historic Landmark (NHL) program and preservation assistance for properties listed on or eligible for the National Register of Historic Places (NR) recognize sites worthy of preservation as valuable illustrations of American heritage. These properties can be located within or outside of national parks and belong to public or private owners. The National Capital Region's NHL Program guides the nomination process for new or amended landmarks and provides assistance to current stewards of NHL properties. The National Register includes places of local, regional, and national importance, while NHLs are sites of the highest national significance.
For more information on how we may assist you, please contact the NCR NHL/NR Coordinator, Kathryn Smith. If you need assistance from Resource Stewardship and Science (RESS), you may submit a Solution for Technical Assistance Requests (STAR) request online (NPS Only).
