What is a landmark?

A local historic landmark is an individual building, structure, site, area, or object that is recognized by official designation. The property must be deemed and found by the RHDC to be of historical, prehistorical, architectural, archaeological, and/or cultural significance, and to possess integrity of design, setting, workmanship, materials, feeling and/or association.

There are many steps to the historic landmark application process. Check out this brochure to learn more. 

Historic Landmark Applications

Applications for Raleigh Historic Landmark designation are reviewed, and recommendations are made by the Raleigh Historic Development Commission (RHDC). However, the final decision is made by City Council.

Applications are also reviewed by the State Historic Preservation Office. Applications include a report on the history of the property as well as photographs.
