The National Register of Historic Places recognizes districts, buildings, structures, objects, and sites
for their significance in American history, archaeology, architecture, engineering, or culture, and
identifies them as worthy of preservation. The National Register is a program of the U. S. Department
of the Interior, National Park Service, and is administered at the State level by the Maryland Historical Trust.
The National Register currently comprises over 1500 listings in Maryland, including some 200 historic
districts. Listed properties span a wide variety of types and periods, ranging from prehistoric
archaeological sites to buildings of the recent past, and include rural landscapes, urban and suburban
neighborhoods, bridges, sailing vessels, and more.
