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). 

At the December 11 quarterly meeting of DHR's two boards, the boards listed ten sites in the Virginia Landmarks Register and recommended forwarding the same nominations to the Keeper of the National Register of HIstoric Places. The sites include the buildings shown here. Clockwise from top right: the Gilmer House, Russell Co.; a cabin that is part of the Kenmore Farm, Amherst Co.; the main residence at Sayers Homestead, Lee Co.;the Tazewell Depot, Tazewell Co.

The next quarterly meeting of the Board of Historic Resources and State Review Board will convene at 10 a.m., March 19, 2015. The meeting location will be announced later.

Board Meeting: March 2015 agenda will be posted prior to the meeting.
