Certified Local Historic Districts

Information about Certified Local Districts in St. Louis

Certified Local Historic Districts

Certified Local Historic Districts are locally-designated historic districts that have been determined by the Keeper of the National Register to be eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places. Any contributing building or structure within these districts receives the same benefits as if it were formally listed in the Register.  Benefits include protection from Federally-funded projects that can negatively affect the district and the ability to qualify for State or Federal Historic Preservation Tax Credits. 8 of City's 18 local historic districts in the City of St. Louis have been Certified.
