U.S. National Register of Historic Places
of Veterinary and Related Interest

"The National Register of Historic Places is the official list of the Nation's historic places worthy of preservation. Authorized by the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, the [United States] National Park Service's National Register of Historic Places is part of a national program to coordinate and support public and private efforts to identify, evaluate, and protect America's historic and archeological resources.”



The American Veterinary Medical History Society is interested in:

  • Identifying properties related to veterinary medicine across the United States that have been designated as historic places under this Act,

  • Promoting their recognition, and

  • Encouraging other worthy sites to be nominated.

NRHP Evaluation Criteria

To be considered eligible, a property must meet the National Register Criteria for Evaluation. This involves examining the property’s age, integrity, and significance.

• Age and Integrity. Is the property old enough to be considered historic (generally at least 50 years old) and does it still look much the way it did in the past?

• Significance. Is the property associated with events, activities, or developments that were important in the past? With the lives of people who were important in the past? With significant architectural history, landscape history, or engineering achievements? Does it have the potential to yield information through archeological investigation about our past?
