Our goal is to nurture a preservation ethic in Nebraska. The State Historic Preservation Plan completed every 5 years with input from Nebraskans guides our work. This plan can also help governments, preservation organizations, private individuals, and other stakeholders with their preservation work.

Goals are:

  • rural and community development
  • identification and assessment of the state's cultural resources
  • funding, incentives, and legislation  to support preservation
  • outreach and education.

The State Historic Preservation Office helps communities preserve historic resources that tell their community’s stories. We advocate for historic preservation to help promote economic development, community planning, tourism, environmental sensitivity, and land-use planning. Our staff conducts public meetings and workshops.

 

We can provide information to teachers to help them connect their students with their local history and expand their critical thinking skills. The National Park Service's Teaching with Historic Places offers online resources. The NPS Historic Preservation Junior Ranger Activity Book is for kids aged seven and up.

 

Contact us to schedule a public outreach opportunity.

The State Historic Preservation Office is party to covenants and easements on historic properties throughout Nebraska that may help ensure their preservation. Covenants may include provisions for building maintenance and/or use; may cover building exteriors, interiors or both; and may apply to landscape features.

Listing on the National Register of Historic Places does not require a covenant.

Yearly memberships start at $32
