State Historic Preservation Board To Meet January 28
BISMARCK, N.D. – The North Dakota State Historic Preservation Review Board will meet Friday, Jan. 28, at 10 a.m. in Classroom B at the North Dakota Heritage Center, Bismarck. The meeting is open to the public, and information to join remotely can be requested from email@example.com. The board reviews nominations to the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) prior to their submission to the Keeper of the NRHP for official consideration.
The “Y” sign at the Fargo-Moorhead YMCA in downtown Fargo is a 1962 aluminum sign in a traditional, typewriter-style serif font with cherry red sides, white faces, and exposed neon tubing that follows the edges of the letter. The sign faithfully testifies to the era in which it was designed and symbolizes the Y’s longstanding presence and efforts to serve the community.
The National Register of Historic Places is the nation’s list of properties considered worthy of preservation. The documentation process for listing demonstrates that resource is significant in some aspect of the nation’s history. Contrary to some misconceptions about the National Register program, listing in it does not prevent owners from altering their property, restricting the use or sale of the property, or establish times requiring that the property must be open to the public. Entry into the National Register of Historic Places does give a property prestige, provides protection from federally-assisted projects, and provides eligibility for certain preservation financial incentives.
