The National Register of Historic Places

The National Register of Historic Places

The National Register of Historic Places exists to recognize, preserve, and protect key sites of America's past. The Register was born from the 1966 National Historic Preservation Act and has since grown to encompass 80,000 properties or 1.4 million resources, 88 of which belong to the state of Indiana. The Glenn A. Black Lab of Archaeology houses artifacts from 40 of these sites, representing 22 Indiana counties and a time span that ranges from pre-Columbian America to the Historic period.
