The National Register of Historic Places
All around the United States there are Historical sites most people never knew existed. Have you ever wanted to find some history close to home? You can find them by using the The National Register of Historic Places (http://www.cr.nps.gov/nr/) or (http://www.nationalregisterofhistoricplaces.com/). A list of historic resources begun by the US government in 1966. Currently contains listings for over 70,000 properties and "nearly one million individual resources--buildings, sites, districts, structures, and objects". All of the sites are searchable via the NRIS or National Register Information System. Unless you're a historian or archeologist, you may find dozens of sites near you that you never knew about.
