Landmarks Heritage Preservation Commission


The National Register of Historic Places is the official list of the Nation's historic places worthy of preservation. Authorized by the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, the National Park Service's National Register of Historic Places is part of a national program to coordinate and support public and private efforts to identify, evaluate, and protect America's historic and archaeological resources. In Nebraska, the National Register is administered by the Nebraska State Historical Society. The Landmarks Heritage Preservation Commission works in cooperation with the NSHS to nominate Omaha properties to the National Register.

The National Register was developed to recognize historic places and those who contributed to our country's heritage. These properties, whether districts, sites, buildings, structures, or objects, are architecturally or archeologically significant or historically significant

for their associations with important persons or events. The National Register is designed to include properties of importance in every locality, not just great national landmarks. A small commercial building, a community park, a private residence, or the remains of a prehistoric village may be eligible for inclusion in the National Register.

Many of Omaha's properties listed on the National Register, which represent important themes in state and/or local history, are identified through surveys performed by the City of Omaha and the ongoing Nebraska Historic Buildings Survey, administered by the Nebraska State Historical Society. Property owners are encouraged to contact the City of Omaha preservation staff if they wish to have their property listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
