The National Register of Historic Places was established by the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, and is maintained by the National Park Service (NPS). In Pennsylvania, the Bureau for Historic Preservation (BHP), acting as the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO), manages the National Register program.
