The Board of Historic Resources and the State Review Board meet quarterly to consider new nominations of historic sites for listing in the Virginia Landmarks Register (VLR) and the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). The two boards also consider proposed updates and boundary increases to nominations for sites previously listed in the VLR and NRHP.
Additionally, the Board of Historic Resources considers new or proposed updates to historical highway markers, and new preservation easements. The State Review Board reviews and evaluates Preliminary Information Forms (PIFs) that DHR staff has requested to be considered. On occasion, the boards convene for special meetings, which are announced here in advance.
Prior to each quarterly meeting, DHR posts information about new nominations, highway markers, easements, and PIFs on this webpage, along with an agenda for the meeting.
The public is welcome to attend quarterly and special board meetings. Check below for time, place, and draft agenda for each meeting.
The next joint quarterly meeting of DHR's two boards will be March 16, 2017.
