What it is
The Determinations of Eligibility for Inclusion in the National Register are regulations that provide guidance to Federal agencies in identifying and evaluating if a property, which is located on lands under their jurisdiction or control or on lands to be affected by proposed actions, is eligible for inclusion in the National Register. They explain the process of requesting determinations of eligibility under section 2(b) of Executive Order 11593 and the regulations of the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (36 CFR part 800) for implementation of sections 1(3) and 2(b) of Executive Order 11593 and the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966.
Why it matters
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.

- Many Mission 66-era structures are reaching the age when they could be listed in the National Register. Does your park have any Mission 66 properties that you feel should be listed in the Register?
