National and state register information

The National Register of Historic Places and the Register of Historic Kansas Places are the official lists of the cultural resources worthy of preservation in Kansas. The quality of significance in American history, architecture, archeology, and culture is present in districts, sites, buildings, structures, and objects that possess integrity of location, design, setting, materials, workmanship, feeling, and association. The KHPO administers the nomination procedures for the state and national registers. Sponsors are assisted in the preparation of the resource data necessary for submitting a national or state register nomination. As time permits, the staff will also prepare the nominations for properties which may have widespread importance but no sponsors to nominate them.

Moved historic properties that have not retained or acquired historic significance in their new environs shall be considered as artifacts without environs.
