This page covers recent or forthcoming activities of the two boards of the Department of Historic Resources: the Board of Historic Resources and the State Review Board (SRB). The two boards meet quarterly to consider new site nominations for listing in the Virginia Landmarks Register, new historical highway markers, and new historic  preservation easements. The SRB also votes on forwarding each landmark nomination to the National Park Service for listing in the National Register of Historic Places.

Prior to each quarterly meeting, DHR posts information about historic site nominations or those sites under early consideration for pursuing formal nomination (see below, Preliminary Evaluation Forms or PIFs).
