Update of National Register Bulletin 38: Guidelines for Evaluating and Documenting Traditional Cultural Properties

The National Register of Historic Places is seeking comments on its revised "National Register Bulletin 38: Guidelines for Evaluating and Documenting Traditional Cultural Properties" (TCP Bulletin). This publication provides guidance for identifying, evaluating, and documenting traditional cultural places (TCPs) that are significant in American history, architecture, engineering, archeology, and culture, at local, state, and national levels of significance.

The Draft TCP Bulletin is available for comment here https://parkplanning.nps.gov/TCPBulletin

The NPS will engage in formal consultation with Native American Tribes, Native Hawaiian Organizations, and Alaska Native Corporations and conduct a series of public webinars tailored to a variety of audiences. The consultation and webinar schedule will be posted in early November.
