Places to photographEdit

National Register of Historic PlacesEdit

The Wikimedia Commons has a category of National Register of Historic Places in Wisconsin.

The National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) is the federal government's official list of historic places that are deemed worthy of preservation.

Some 2,500 of the 90,000 NRHP sites are also recognized as National Historic Landmarks (NHL), which have outstanding historical significance.

State designated sitesEdit

Wisconsin's State Register of Historic Places is maintained by the Wisconsin Historical Society. A searchable website is maintained by them at their website, a downloadable pdf is also available. If you have questions about if a location is on the register or if you believe a location should be on the register but is not listed please contact the State's Historic Preservation Officer via his website. Edit!

Local historic sites and districtsEdit

In addition to historic sites recognized by the federal and state governments, many localities also maintain their own lists of historic sites, landmarks, and districts. Explore whether any local cities by you have their own lists of historical sites (often maintained by local historic societies).
