About Historic Registers

An historic property in Spokane may be listed, either individually or as a contributing structure in a district, on the Spokane Register of Historic Places or the National Register of Historic Places.  While a nomination to either register requires review by the Spokane Historic Landmarks Commission, these two distinct registers provide different management guidelines and tax incentives for listed properties.
