“National Historic Landmarksare nationally significant historic places designated by the Secretary of the Interior because they possess exceptional value or quality in illustrating or interpreting the heritage of the United States. Today, fewer than 2,500 historic places bear this national distinction. Working with citizens throughout the nation, the National Historic Landmarks Program draws upon the expertise of National Park Service staff who work to nominate new landmarks and provide assistance to existing landmarks”.
Most of my photos are of Landmarks located near my home in Northern California, although I do have a couple taken during my trip to Savannah and Charleston. I have submitted a few of these to the NHL Web site and perhaps one or more will be accepted and published. Plan on visiting sites nearby your own home areas – definitely worth a visit.
