List of Delisted National Register of Historic Places Properties

List Of Delisted National Register Of Historic Places Properties

This is an incomplete list of properties once listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) which have since been delisted. There are about 1500 such instances in total. Also included is an intended-to-become complete list of former National Historic Landmarks (NHLs) which were de-designated as NHLs, of which some were delisted while others remain listed on the NRHP. There are approximately 30 such de-designations.

Places are listed on the NRHP originally for their historical merit. They may be important for their architecture, for their association with events and historically important persons, and for other reasons. Places of exceptional merit may further be designated National Historic Landmarks.

Delistings occur relatively rarely, usually when the historic integrity of a site has been lost by demolition, fire, vandalism, or other causes. There are about 1500 such instances in total reflected in the NRIS database.

It is also necessary for the National Park Service, which maintains the National Register, to become aware of the situation. In 2008, a large number of Mississippi properties were delisted after buildings were destroyed by Hurricane Katrina, while there was not a corresponding flurry of delistings in Louisiana, perhaps due to differences in state historical offices' budgets and priorities. There are other instances of buildings being demolished but still being listed, apparently only due to no official notice of the demolition being recognized. These include several properties at Cornell University.

Famous quotes containing the words list of, places, properties, historic, list, national and/or register:

    A man’s interest in a single bluebird is worth more than a complete but dry list of the fauna and flora of a town.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Traveling, you realize that differences are lost: each city takes to resembling all cities, places exchange their form, order, distances, a shapeless dust cloud invades the continents.
    Italo Calvino (1923–1985)

    A drop of water has the properties of the sea, but cannot exhibit a storm. There is beauty of a concert, as well as of a flute; strength of a host, as well as of a hero.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The historic ascent of humanity, taken as a whole, may be summarized as a succession of victories of consciousness over blind forces—in nature, in society, in man himself.
    Leon Trotsky (1879–1940)

    Do your children view themselves as successes or failures? Are they being encouraged to be inquisitive or passive? Are they afraid to challenge authority and to question assumptions? Do they feel comfortable adapting to change? Are they easily discouraged if they cannot arrive at a solution to a problem? The answers to those questions will give you a better appraisal of their education than any list of courses, grades, or test scores.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)

    Public speaking is done in the public tongue, the national or tribal language; and the language of our tribe is the men’s language. Of course women learn it. We’re not dumb. If you can tell Margaret Thatcher from Ronald Reagan, or Indira Gandhi from General Somoza, by anything they say, tell me how. This is a man’s world, so it talks a man’s language.
    Ursula K. Le Guin (b. 1929)

    Never to walk from the station’s lamps and laurels
    Carrying my father’s lean old leather case
    Crumbling like the register at the hotel....
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
