Criteria: The quality of significance in American history, architecture,
archeology, engineering, and culture is present in districts, sites, build-
ings, structures, and objects that possess integrity of location, design, set-
ring, materials, workmanship, feeling, and association, and:
A. That are associated with events that have made a significant contri-
bution to the broad patterns of our history; or
B. That are associated with the lives of persons significant in our past; or
C. That embody the distinctive characteristics of a type, period, or
method of construction or that represent the work of a master, or
that possess high artistic values, or that represent a significant and
distinguishable entity whose components may lack individual dis-
tinction; or
D. That have yielded, or may be likely to yield, information important
in prehistory or history.
Criteria Considerations: Ordinarily cemeteries, birthplaces, or graves
of historical figures, properties owned by religious institutions or used
for religious purposes, structures that have been moved from their origi-
nal locations, reconstructed historic buildings, properties primarily com-
memorative in nature, and properties that have achieved significance
within the past 50 years shall not be considered eligible for the National
Register. However, such properties will qualify if they are integral parts
of districts that do meet the criteria or if they fall within the following cat-
A. A religious property deriving primary significance from architec-
tural or artistic distinction or historical importance; or
B. A building or structure removed from its original location but which
is significant primarily for architectural value, or which is the sur-
viving structure most importantly associated with a historic person
or event; or
C. A birthplace or grave of a historical figure of outstanding importance
if there is no other appropriate site or building directly associated
with his or her productive life; or
D. A cemetery which derives its primary significance from graves of
persons of transcendent importance, from age, from distinctive de-
sign features, or from association with historic events; or
E. A reconstructed building Wheh accurately executed in a suitable envi-
ronment and presented in a dignified manner as part of a restora-
tion master plan, and when no other building or structure with the
same association has survived; or
F. A property primarily commemorative in intent if design, age, tradi-
tion, or symbolic value has invested it with its own historical signif-
icance; or
G. A property achieving significance within the past 50 years if it is of
exceptional importance.
