The National Register of Historic Places provides public recognition of properties that embody qualities and associations significant to regional and national heritage. Owners of National Register properties may take advantage of state and federal tax credits and grants for the rehabilitation of historic structures. National Register listing also helps promote wider public awareness of heritage and preservation issues.

National Register nominations are evaluated in terms of a series of established eligibility criteria. Successful nominations are typically supported by in-depth research and documentation including archival research, archaeological evaluation or architectural analysis either singularly or in combination. Rivanna Archaeology can assist at all levels of the nomination process. Using our research expertise and knowledge of National Register criteria we prepare nominations that best reflect the significant aspects of a property. Acting as liaison between client and the Department of Historic Resources, Rivanna Archaeology can shepherd the prepared application through the approval process.
