Heritage Tourism


The NPS is encouraging local communities, property owners, and organizations to conduct historical research on sites associated with the Underground Railroad. Historically significant and verifiable properties should be nominated to the Network, and can be nominated those properties to the National Register (NR). Designating the site as a National Historic Landmark (NHL) is also a possibility for nationally significant properties with a high degree of integrity. NR listings and NHL's associated with the Underground Railroad can be included in a National Register "travel itinerary" on the NR web site.
