NationalRegisterOfHistoricPlaces.com – Know Places
NationalRegisterOfHistoricPlaces.com is a site that is part of a US nationwide program that aims to coordinate and support public and private efforts to identify, evaluate, and protect historic and archeological resources.
In the site, users will be able to find indexes of historic and vacant places listed by state and county. The idea behind this site is to foster education and research, but also tourism and conservation of historical places. For instance, you can follow the link to the US best inns, some of which are located in historical properties and landmark places. Also interesting is the listing of vacant and ‘not in use’ historic properties or lands that can be purchased for commercial or residential uses. Given the wide scope of information this site displays, it will definitely be of use not only for history and archeology enthusiasts and professionals, but for the general audience as well.
