How can a property be nominated to the National Register of Historic Places?
Assistance with process, terminology, designation criteria, historic contexts and significance, property types, integrity, setting boundaries and counting contributors can be found in NPS Bulletin 15: How to Apply the National Register Criteria for Evaluation and Bulletin 16: How to Complete the National Register Registration Form.
Send the completed package to the California State Office of Historic Preservation for review. When completed, the nomination package will be scheduled for a hearing at one of the quarterly meetings of the State Historic Resources Commission. If accepted, the nomination will be forwarded to the Keeper of the National Register in Washington, DC for listing.
