  • National Register of Historic Places Database and Research Page –  “Since its inception in 1966, more than 88,000 properties have been listed in the National Register. Together these records hold information on more than 1.4 million individual resources–buildings, sites, districts, structures, and objects–and therefore provide a link to the country’s heritage at the national, state, and local levels.”  They are currently digitizing their collection of applications, which include a variety of information about the place, and may contain photos and maps.  At present, not all records have been digitized.  They note that some state offices have digitized their records independently and made them available online (scroll to end of page to see list and links).

    Thanks for posting about the Find A Record website. It is now on my Favorites Bar, and I expect to use it frequently. That was truly a “find”,

      You’re welcome, Janice. I read about it recently, but your post actually explained it and how to use it, which I appreciated. I checked it out briefly and added it to my Diigo bookmark collection. Hope to explore it more as time becomes available.
