The National Register of Historic Places is the federal government's official list of properties that are significant in American history and worthy of preservation. Properties listed in the National Register include individual buildings, historic districts, structures, and archaeological sites. Among Rhode Island's 19,000 properties, you will find colonial houses, farms, Victorian neighborhoods, factory villages, diners, monuments, military bases, seacoast villages, suburban neighborhoods, and more. Rhode Island also has its own State Register of Historic Places. The criteria for inclusion in the State Register are the same as those for the National Register.
