Benefits of Listing in the National Register
Listing in the National Register is the United States' official list of historical properties worthy of preservation and provides recognition and assists in preserving California's heritage. Listing also assures review of federal projects that might adversely affect the character of the historic property. As of January 1, 1993, all National Register properties are automatically included in the California Register of Historical Resources (California Register) and afforded consideration during the State (CEQA) environmental review process.
Listing in the National Register does NOT mean that the federal or state government will attach restrictive covenants to the property or try to acquire it. Public visitation rights are not required of owners. National Register listed properties may qualify for state and federal benefits.
