National Register of Historic Places[edit]

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

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.

New Mexico Register of Cultural Properties[edit]

This section needs expansion - can you help? Edit!

The New Mexico Historic Preservation Division maintains a State Register of Cultural Properties. For more listings than those included on the Wikipedia list, see lists by name, county, and state registry number available from the State Registers of Cultural Properties website.

Local historic sites and districts[edit]

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).
