Washington, D.C.--Secretary of the Interior Bruce Babbitt announced the designation of 15 properties in 10 states as National Historic Landmarks (NHL). The designated sites were recommended to the Secretary by the National Park System Advisory Board for their national significance in American history and culture.

A site is recognized as a NHL because of its historical importance to the entire nation. Only 2310, or roughly 3% of the 71,000 sites listed in the National Register of Historic Places have been selected for landmark designation. The Historic Sites Act of 1935 authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to recognize historic places judged to have exceptional value to the nation. The newly designated sites appear below.

For more information contact Patty Henry of the National Historic Landmark Survey. Ph. 202-343-8163, E-mail: Patty_Henry@nps.gov(Patty_Henry@nps.gov )
