The Board of Historic Resources and the State Review Board meet quarterly to consider new nominations to the Virginia Landmarks Register and the National Register of Historic Places as well as new historical highway markers, and new preservation easements. Additionally, the boards sometimes meet for specially convened meetings.
Prior to each quarterly meeting, DHR posts new nominations and preliminary information about sites under early consideration for pursuing formal nomination to the state and national registers. Information about new highway markers and new easements is also posted before each quarterly meeting along with an agenda for the meeting. The public is welcome to attend DHR quarterly and other meetings. Check below for time, place, and agenda for each meeting.
The VBHR met to consider approval of updated replacement
markers for signs selected for retirement. The meeting convened
at 12 noon, Sept. 21, at DHR Headquarters,
located at 2801 Kensington Ave., Richmond.
