Completing a National Register Nomination

The first step in the nomination process is completion of the National Register Preliminary Questionnaire. Please complete the questionnaire and obtain an opinion from the Ohio Historic Preservation Office that the property qualifies for nomination prior to writing a nomination. Our office will then provide you with a National Register nomination form or MS-Word format template of the nomination plus a complete how-to packet to guide you through preparing your nomination.
