The Atchafalaya Heritage Area has been designated by Congress as a National Heritage Area.
Established by Congress in 1966, the National Register of Historic Places is the nation's official list of significant historic properties.
Each state has a historic preservation office, which is responsible for nominating buildings, sites, districts, etc. to the Register.
In Louisiana the Division of Historic Preservation (DHP - part of the Office of Cultural Development, Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism) administers this program.
