Busting Myths About Having Your Building On The National Register

Owners of historic buildings often seek opportunities to help restore the building. Yet, they’re afraid to have their building placed on the National Register. Why is this so? Click the link below for this week’s episode of The State of Greater Western New York Report to learn why myths might be keeping you from pursuing your goals.

Megan Klem, Director of Preservation Services at the Landmark Society of Western New York, sits in as our guest this week. During the first half of the show, she explains what the Landmark Society (and its sister organization in Buffalo) does and how you can use it. She also points out the difference between registering a historic district versus registering a single property.

In the second half of the show, Klem outlines several myths people believe about placing a building on the National Register. She also tells you what benefits it offers you. Finally, she reveals important information you could use if you are interested in applying to have your building or structure placed on the National Register.
