The National Register webinar by Sarah Woodard David provides a brief history of the historic
preservation legislation that underpins the Register and an overview of the North Carolina State Historic Preservation Office’s structure and branches. The main theme of the presentation, however, is the National Register itself. Questions answered include ‘What is the National Register?’, ‘What does the National Register do and not do?’, ‘How does a National Register listing differ from local historic designation?’, and ‘What are the requirements for National Register listing?’. The webinar defines the two necessary components for National Register listing, which are architectural integrity and historic significance, and the presentation presents the process for National Register listing in the state of North Carolina.
