National/State Register Quick Links
The National Register of Historic Places is the federal list of historic properties that have been formally recognized by the National Park Service. The DHPA reviews and maintains the nominations for Indiana properties included in the National Register. Additionally, Indiana has a State Register that recognizes Indiana’s historic sites and structures on a statewide scale.
Indiana possesses a variety of historic resources. Some are already listed on the State or National Register while others are not. To find out if a property is listed, please check the online database SHAARD. Not all “old” things are eligible for one of the Registers. We encourage people to contact the DHPA to determine whether a property is eligible. There are a variety of resources available online to evaluate eligibility for the Registers.
