State Historic Preservation Board to Meet August 28
BISMARCK – The North Dakota State Historic Preservation Review Board will meet Friday, August 28, at 10 a.m. in Lecture Room A at the North Dakota Heritage Center in Bismarck. The meeting is open to the public. 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 M.E. Beebe Historic District in Fargo consists of six houses owned, built by, or remodeled by Milton E. Beebe. The district is significant for its architecture as well as for its association with Beebe as he lived and worked from buildings in the district.
The Ashley Jewish Homesteaders Cemetery near Ashley is being nominated as the only remaining site associated with the McIntosh County Jewish farming community, the largest Jewish agricultural settlement in North Dakota.
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, restrict 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.
