NCPTT partnered with its host institution, Northwestern State University of Louisiana, to submit an expanded nomination of the Normal Hill National Register Historic District, which contains the oldest portion of the university’s campus. On June 19, 2014, the Northwestern State University Historic District was entered into the National Register of Historic Places. The expanded district includes the original Normal Hill Historic District, Lee H. Nelson Hall (NCPTT’s headquarters), and adds examples of Beaux Arts, Colonial Revival, Tudor Revival, Jacobean and Collegiate Gothic, Modern, Campus Modern, and Art Deco. The properties included are associated with events that made significant contribution to the history of the university and higher education in north Louisiana.
