What properties in North Dakota are listed in the National Register of Historic Places?

The North Dakota State Historic Preservation Office does not maintain an online, searchable database of listed properties since the National Park Service maintains the National Register of Historic Places database. The official database can be accessed through the National Register of Historic Places site:

For more information on properties listed in the National Register of Historic places you can call the National Register Coordinator at 701.328.2089 or email Please have the property's street address or legal address (Township, Range, and Section) at hand.

The Baukol Historic District includes the 41 properties in the Baukol Addition in Grand Forks. Most of the residences in the district were built between 1946 and 1962, with 22 of the residences built in 1946 by the Baukol Construction Company to address the housing needs immediately following World War II. The district makes up the first postwar multiple property development in the city of Grand Forks, and more than half of the modest homes were owned by military veterans in 1950. The residences predominantly reflect the Modern Movement and are all single-family homes less than 1,200 square feet in size.

The Chester Fritz Auditorium on the University of North Dakota campus in Grand Forks is a late-Modernist building designed by prominent architect Myron Denbrook and built in 1972 using precast concrete panel technology. Denbrook consulted with acoustical engineer Robert C. Coffeen and then designed the rest of the building to facilitate the production of performances and educational events as the university expanded its curriculum and created the College of Fine Arts.

The Andrew Erickson Barn near Hettinger is a common barn used for both dairy and beef cattle. Built in 1952, the barn has a low concrete sidewall with a gothic-arched roof. As was common with most barns, the Erickson barn also housed family celebrations. The barn is an excellent example of its type and attests to trends in the development of agriculture in North Dakota. This barn was listed under the context document "Common Farm and Ranch Barns in North Dakota."
