The National Register has identified
four Criteria under which the significance of a resource may be interpreted. A National Register property must represent an important facet of American history, architecture, archeology, engineering, or culture, and possess integrity of location, design, setting, materials, workmanship, feeling, and association, and:
associated with events that have made a significant contribution to the broad patterns of our history; or
are associated with the lives of persons significant in our past; or
embody the distinctive characteristics of a type, period, or method of construction, or that represent the work of a master, or that possess high artistic values, or that represent a significant and distinguishable entity whose components may lack individual distinction; or
have yielded, or may be likely to yield, information important in prehistory or history.
