NATIONAL REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES – OUR FINN CAMP, the D.F.C.S.C.A., was listed as a Historic Place in the National Register, on January 27, 2007. The National Register of Historic Places is the federal government’s official list of properties deemed worthy of preservation because of their importance in American history and culture.
Listing in the National Register provides the following benefits to historic properties:
1. Recognition that a property is significant to the nation, the state or the community.
2. Consideration in the planning for federal or federally assisted projects.
3. Eligibility for feral tax incentives and other preservation assistance
Listing in the National Register DOES NOT interfere with a private property owner’s rights to alter,
manage or to dispose of property. Listing DOES NOT mean that limitations will be placed on the properties by the federal or state government. Public visitation rights ARE NOT required of owners. NEITHER THE FEDERAL OR STATE
GOVERNMENT WILL ATTACH RESTRICTIVE COVENANTS TO THE PROPERTIES OR SEEK TO ACQUIRE THEM.
HARRY KANSMAN, D.F.C.S.C.A Historic Site Coordinator.
THE FUTURE PLANNING COMMITTEE
