National Historic LandmarkNational Historic Landmarks
are nationally significant historic places designated by the Secretary of the Interior
because they possess exceptional value or quality in illustrating or interpreting the heritage of the United States
. As of 2003
, fewer than 2,500 historic places bear this national distinction. Working with citizens throughout the nation, the National Historic Landmarks Program draws upon the expertise of National Park Service
staff who work to nominate new landmarks and provide assistance to existing landmarks. A friends group of owners and managers, the National Historic Landmark Stewards Association, also works to preserve, protect and promote National Historic Landmarks.
