50 years old, or older . .


That's the criteria for listing in the National Register of Historic Places. Most people migrate to the "or older" part of that requirement, but the fact is that as of right now, anything built before July 1st, 1959 is potentially eligible. Before you freak out, consider all the great buildings this could include. Like it or not (and I LOVE it) little houses like this one will soon be listed in the NR. Yea!

  1. I think most of the stuff built after WWII is crap. I hate that older gems have to compete for renovation and preservation dollars with this junk.
