Established by Congress in 1966, the National Register of Historic Places is the nation's official list of significant historic properties. Each state has a historic preservation office, which is responsible for nominating buildings, sites, districts, etc. to the Register. In Louisiana, the Division of Historic Preservation administers this program.
