What are the benefits and responsibilities of National Register listing?

Listing on the National Register allows recognition of our most important historic resources and provides access to federal and state tax credits for rehabilitation of these properties. National Register listing does not include any restrictions on the use, treatment, transfer, or disposition of private property. However, properties that utilize federal or state tax credits must comply with Secretary of the Interiors Standards for the required period of time.
