Below are user-tips for searching for NHL nominations on the NPS Focus web-site. We are providing these tips to help our users navigate through some of the peculiarities of the system.
Type a minimum of keywords into the "Resource Name" field. The more general your search term the more successful you'll be at finding the property you are looking for. Entering a keyword and selecting a state from the drop down menu usually suffices to locate a nomination.
The name of the National Historic Landmark may be different than that used for the National Register of Historic Places listing. This is due to an incompatibility between our program database and the NPS Focus database. For example, the Robert R. Moton House (NHL), is listed as Holly Knoll on the National Register of Historic Places. Keep this in mind as you are searching for a particular nomination.
You can distinguish whether you're looking at the NR or NHL nomination by looking at the URL address provided for the documentation in the results page. The nomination will have a url as follows: http://pdfhost.focus.nps.gov/docs/NHLS/Text/ 66000833.pdf. Note that the url has "NHL" as part of its address.
