BISMARCK Ė The North Dakota State Historic Preservation Review Board will meet Friday, April 26, 2013, at 10 a.m. in the Legislative Assembly Room at the North Dakota Heritage Center in Bismarck. The meeting is open to the public. The board reviews nominations to the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) prior to their submission to the Keeper of the NRHP for official consideration.
Alderman School District #78, located north of Valley City, is a one-room schoolhouse in nearly original condition. This school has never been moved and exemplifies the ideal rural school building prior to World War II as set by laws and regulations in North Dakota.
The Clark House in Goodrich was built in 1901 by the homesteader who owned the land where the town would be built. This Colonial Revival residence is an excellent example of its type and stands as a reminder of a time of rivalry and change in Sheridan County.
The National Register of Historic Places is the nationís list of properties considered worthy of preservation. The documentation process for listing demonstrates that resource is significant in some aspect of the nationís history. Contrary to some misconceptions about the National Register program, listing in it does not prevent owners from altering their property, restricting the use or sale of the property, or establish times requiring that the property must be open to the public. Entry into the National Register of Historic Places does give a property prestige, provides protection from federally-assisted projects, and provides eligibility for certain preservation financial incentives.
