To qualify for the National Register of Historic Places, a property should be at least fifty years old and have significance at the local, state, or national level in at least one of the following criteria:
- Events: Properties associated with a particular place or event in time that was important to our history.
- Persons: Properties associated with events that were important to our history.
- Design: Buildings, structures, or objects with architectural or engineering importance. They may be examples of a type, period, or method of construction, or they may be the work of a master, or possess high artistic value. Groupings of properties may share a common heritage, such as a historic district.
- Information: Resources that have yielded, or may yield in the future, important information about our prehistory or history.
In addition to meeting at least one of these four criteria, a property must also have integrity. For more information about the National Register click here.
