About this image

The National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) is the federal government's official list of historic places that are deemed worthy of preservation, of which there are over 80,000. A good chunk of them already have photos, but that doesn't mean you can't take more of the same monuments - and many are still missing!

Red marks are sites that do not already have a photo.
Green marks already have photos, but photos of these sites are just as welcome!


Historic Civil Engineering Landmarks

The American Society of Civil Engineers maintains a list of Historic Civil Engineering Landmarks in the United States. There are currently 266 sites.

State-level and local sites

In addition to nationally-designated sites, explore what your state may offer in terms of listings! Most states have their own state-wide historical societies, many of which maintain listings of historical and cultural sites. Likewise, many counties and municipalities may also have their own lists of historical and cultural sites.

The following are some guides by state and localities so that people may easily find lists of sites to photograph.

Daughters of the American Revolution Sites

The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) organization maintains a list of historic sites and properties . These sites are of historic value and have had DAR involved in some way (erection, ownership, etc.). Their website contains lists of sites sorted by state.


Historical Marker Database

The Historical Marker Database (HMDB) organization maintains [1] an online database that documents locations of numerous historical markers in the United States as well as other countries. Their website contains lists of sites with multiple ways to search.
