The State Historic Preservation Legislation Database was developed under a grant from the National Center for Preservation Technology & Training, National Park Service, by the National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers in cooperation with the National Conference of State Legislatures. The database contains citations and summaries of all state legislation that specifically references historic preservation, historic properties, archeological sites or culturally significant human burials. It is organized by state and can be searched using a list of specific query topics. The database contains more than 1,900 individual entries.
The content of the database was researched and written by Jeffrey Shrimpton, historic preservation consultant, for the National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers.
The State Historic Preservation Legislation Database is no longer available on the Internet.
