HISTORIC AND ARCHEOLOGICAL RESOURCES MANAGEMENT
CHAPTER 2.
2.1 THE NATIONAL REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES.  The National
Register of Historic Places is the official list of the nation's
cultural resources that are considered worthy of preservation.
This list is constantly growing as more properties are identified
that have the kinds of historical, architectural, cultural, or
engineering significance in American history that makes them
eligible for listing.  The Navy's preservation activities are
based on identifying and protecting the cultural resources under
its control that are either listed on the National Register or
eligible for listing.
2.1.1 Eligibility.  When does "old" become "historic"?  The
National Park Service has developed a strict set of criteria that
define the buildings, districts, structures, objects, and sites
that can be considered for National Register listing.  First,
they must be significant in American history, architecture,
engineering, archeology, or culture.  Furthermore, they must
possess integrity of location, design, setting, materials,
workmanship, feeling, and association; that is, they must not
have been altered, moved, damaged, or deteriorated to such an
extent that they no longer display the qualities that made them
significant in the first place.  They also must:
o
Be associated with events that have made a significant
contribution to the broad patterns of our history;
o
Be associated with the lives of persons significant in our
past;
Embody the distinctive characteristics of a type, period,
o
method of construction, represent the work of a master,
possess high artistic values, or represent a significant
and distinguishable entity whose components may lack
individual distinction; or
Have yielded, or be likely to yield, information on
o
prehistory or history.
Exceptions to Criteria.  There are properties that meet all
these criteria but still do not qualify for Register listing.
Ordinarily, cemeteries, birthplaces, or graves of historic
figures, properties owned by religious institutions or used for
religious purposes, structures that have been moved from their
original locations, reconstructed historic buildings, properties
primarily commemorative in nature (like monuments), and
properties that have achieved significance within the last 50
years are not considered eligible.  However, these properties may
be listed as integral parts of historic districts that meet the
criteria.  Although historic properties are most often designated
