The National Park Service and National Archives completed a long-term project to digitize and make available textual application records related to nearly 100,000 historic sites and properties on the National Register of Historic Places from all fifty states and US territories. The project involved capturing the information digitally, adding metadata, and making the files available for download from the National Archives Catalog. Researchers and information professionals will have access to this rich cultural history of the United States as authorized by the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966.
