Can Anyone List a Site in the National Register?

Yes!  The Heritage Council is a leader in helping Kentuckians turn a National Register nomination into a do-it-yourself project.

The documentation required to get a property listed involves a type-written form, black-and-white photography, and mapping.  While completing a National Register nomination does require comprehensive research and basic writing skills, Heritage Council staff are available to answer questions and guide you through this process.  Additionally, the National Register office has published a series of detailed "How to" bulletins to assist authors.

How to Complete the National Register Registration Form [External Link - You are now leaving the .gov domain. ] gives step-by-step instructions, and other bulletins offer advice on nominating particular classes of resources such as battlefields, historic mines, ships or designed historic landscapes.  These bulletins, as well as National Register nomination forms, are available at the National Park Service National Register Web site.
