The National Register of Historic Places, established in 1966 by the National Historic Preservation Act and managed by the National Park Service, is the official list of buildings, structures, sites, objects, and districts that embody the historical and cultural foundations of our country. The National Register is part of a national program to coordinate and support public and private efforts to identify, evaluate, and protect America's historic and archaeological resources.  

Since the first listing in 1966, more than 12,000 buildings, structures, sites, and districts in Vermont have been nominated and listed to the National Register. Official copies of all National Register nomination forms for resources in Vermont can be viewed in the Online Resource Center (ORC).
