The other day I was reading an article about National Historic Landmarks. This program is overseen by the National Park Service along with their better known program the National Register of Historic Places. The National Register documents buildings that are important to a community or state. Minnesota has more than 6,000 properties on this list from small workingmen’s houses on Milwaukee Avenue to the Foshay Tower. But to be designated a National Historic Landmark the building or site must have national significance.
