National Register of Historic Places Nomination and Evaluation

PAL personnel have authored hundreds of National Register of Historic Places Nominations and numerous formal Determination of Eligibility (DOE) reports.

These projects have included the evaluation and registration of a wide variety of historic property types with significance in nearly every area defined by the National Register.

PAL has an outstanding reputation among State Historic Preservation Offices and review boards in New England and the Mid-Atlantic for preparing concise and accurate documentation that fully justifies the significance of the property and conforms to the National Park Service’s technical guidelines for format and content.

Our approach relies on:

  • extensive research to document the property’s history and relate it to broader themes in American history
  • fieldwork to identify the defining physical characteristics of the property
  • evaluation based on established National Register listing criteria.

By drawing on the vast experience of our interdisciplinary staff of architectural historians, industrial historians, and archaeologists, PAL can effectively evaluate virtually any property type and prepare National Register nominations in all accepted formats, including individual, district, and multiple property submissions.
