National Historic Landmarks (NHL) are buildings, districts, sites, structures, and objects (almost always) within the United States or its insular areas and designated by the United States Secretary of the Interior because they are

  • sites where events of national historical significance occurred;
  • places where prominent Americans lived or worked;
  • icons of ideals that shaped the nation;
  • outstanding examples of design or construction;
  • places characterizing a way of life; or
  • archeological sites able to yield information.

More than half of U.S. NHLs are privately-owned. As of 2003, fewer than 2,500 historic places bear this national distinction. Working with citizens throughout the nation, the National Historic Landmarks Program draws upon the expertise of National Park Service staff who work to nominate new landmarks and provide assistance to existing landmarks. A friends group of owners and managers, the National Historic Landmark Stewards Association, also works to preserve, protect and promote National Historic Landmarks.

National Historic Landmarks are a subset of the properties listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
