Unprecedented federal and state tax credits are now available for income-producing properties that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. These credits can potentially pay for up to 45% of the cost of restoring or upgrading historic buildings, whether registered individually or designated as "contributing properties" within a national historic district.

Historical markers and designations are tools you can use to interpret, promote and protect historic and cultural resources that are worthy of preservation. Through the designation process, properties important to a community can be evaluated using established criteria and, if appropriate, marked for the education and enjoyment of citizens and visitors alike.
