Welcome to the Louisiana Division of Historic Preservation's National Register Database. Louisiana is privileged to have over 1300 entries on this prestigious list, and the number continues to rise. Because our listings embody the state's most significant historic sites, Louisiana's National Register properties should be a major focus of any study relating to our heritage. For this reason, the Louisiana Legislature has mandated that the Division of Historic Preservation make this information readily available to the public in a manner appealing to citizens of all ages. Narratives describing the property and explaining its importance (Parts 7 & 8 of the National Register Nomination Form), and a selection of photographs and location maps are provided for each property/district in the database. Historic district maps are in PDF format, which allows you to enlarge them for easier reading. The narratives are also in PDF format. We hope that your National Register research will be easy and enjoyable.
Recently, our website switched to a new server and we have been experiencing a few issues when searching the National Register Database including the database resetting when viewing multiple pages. Please see the following document for instructions should you also encounter these issues: How To Navigate the National Register Database

Attention Preparers of National Register Nominations:
The National Park Service occasionally changes or adds requirements for the physical description and significance statement narratives that form the most important part of the National Register form. Therefore, many of the examples included in this data base no longer illustrate the current requirements. We strongly suggest that you contact our National Register Coordinator at (225) 219-4595 before you begin writing your nomination.
Attention Tax Credit Applicants:
Maps of all the National Register historic districts in Louisiana cities and towns where there is likely to be interest in either the federal or state tax credit program are included in this database with their boundaries outlined in red. If your property lies within a National Register district's boundaries, was 50 or more years of age at the time of the district's nomination, and retains its historic character, it is listed on the National Register. If your property is located along a boundary of one of the National Register districts and you remain unsure of your property's Register status for any reason, please telephone the Louisiana National Register Coordinator at (225) 219-4595.

The National Register historic districts of New Orleans are major factors in defining the city's historic character and stimulating its economic growth. A comprehensive map showing the boundaries of these districts has long been needed by home owners, developers, business owners and tourists.
The Division of Historic Preservation is pleased to have assisted the City of New Orleans in the creation of this important tool. DHP wishes to thank Doug Paulson, GISP/GIS Analyst and Denice Ross, Director, both with the city's Office of Information Technology and Innovation, Enterprise Information Team, for generously inviting us to participate in their project and allowing us to post the map on our web site.

Determining the National Register Status of a Property
Louisiana's National Register historic district documentation does not include inventories designating the National Register status of each property within a district's boundaries. Thus, we use a two-step process for confirming the National Register status of a property within a district.
