Historic Districts and Landmarks

Click here to view enlarged map as 407 KB PDF file. The National Register of Historic Places is the United States' official list of cultural resources worthy of preservation. More than 70 sites throughout the Basin are on the National Register, as shown on the National Historic Districts and Landmarks Map [407 KB].

Authorized under the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, the National Register is part of a national program to coordinate and support public and private efforts to identify, evaluate, and protect our historic and archeological resources. The National Register is administered by the National Park Service under the Secretary of the Interior. Properties listed in the National Register include districts, sites, buildings, structures, and objects that are significant in American history, architecture, archeology, engineering, and culture. These resources contribute to an understanding of the historical and cultural foundations of the United States.
