This form is used by the Alabama Historical Commission (AHC) to determine potential eligibility to the National Register of Historic Places, the nation's official list of cultural resources, 50 years or older, worthy of preservation. Authorized under the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, the National Register is part of a nationwide program to coordinate and support public and private efforts to identify, evaluate, and protect our historic and archaeological places. The National Register listing only recognizes a place's historic character and does not place restrictions on the property. The list is maintained by the National Park Service.

The AHC will review complete applications within a thirty-day period and will determine if a property is listed in or eligible for the National Register. A digital copy of the decision letter will be emailed to the applicant; hard copies will be mailed upon request. 

Note: the AHC's determination that a property is eligible for listing in the National Register is not the same as it being formally listed by the National Park Service.
