The National Park Service wants your input to update National Register Bulletin 16: How to Complete the National Register Registration Form.

The registration form is the backbone of the National Register of Historic Places nomination program. It provides guidance for identifying, documenting and evaluating properties.

Consultants, government agencies, private sector and the public have used this important tool to list more than 92,900 properties in the National Register. These listings represent over 1.8 million historic resources important in American history.

Provide your ideas on how to make the National Register’s guidance current, clear and publicly accessible. Deliver your written comments by Sunday, December 31.
