Philadelphia Register of Historic Places
The Philadelphia Register of Historic Places is an inventory of historic resources that have been designated by the Philadelphia Historical Commission. The register includes:
- Structures, such as bridges.
- Public interiors.
- Sites, such as Penn Treaty Park.
- Objects, such as memorials and fountains.
The commission maintains the register and considers new nominations. Anyone can nominate a property to the register. Owner consent is not required for the commission to designate a property.
Once a property is designated, the commission reviews building permit applications for the property. If you own a historic property, you can learn more about what designation means for you.
