A comprehensive survey of every property or neighborhood recognized by the federal government as significant historically for its architectural or cultural importance or as an archaeological site.

The National Register is the official list of historic properties considered worthy of preservation. No other reference work gives so much information on such a wide range of historically important properties including homes (both mansions and homesteads), public buildings, industrial buildings, monuments of civil engineering, and artifacts such as sailing ships and fairground carousels. Information on each property is arranged by state.

The microfiche edition is in two parts and reproduces the detailed information and photographs held in the Washington office of the National Register of Historic Places. Nearly 50,000 properties are included with over 200,000 photographs and 260,000 pages of text.
