Including National Historic Landmarks in your lesson plans is a great way to explore the many stories that make up American history. All NHLs have national significance and high degrees of historic integrity. These qualities provide opportunities to explore the diversity of American history and the American experience.
- The Teaching with Historic Places (TwHP) program designs lesson plans that relate to history, social studies, geography, civics, and other subjects. The lesson plans feature properties that are listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Some of these properties are also National Historic Landmarks.
Other information on our website may also be of use to you in planning curriculum that involves NHLs:
- Theme studies and special studies provide historic context about a variety of topics in American history.
- Lists of NHLs in each state to learn more about how local and national history are intertwined.
- NHL nominations. Each nomination makes a history- or archeology-based argument about the importance of the NHL.
