Frequently Asked Questions

31) What is the National Register of Historic Places?

Answer: See National Register Fact Sheet from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Historic Preservation Division.

2) I live in the College Park National Register Historic District.  Can I obtain a plaque?

Though a structure may be located within the boundaries of the College Park National Register Historic District, it must be considered a contributing resource within the district.  For more information, contact the Historic Preservation Division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources at (770) 389-7843.

3) My home is a contributing resource within the boundaries of the College Park National Register Historic District. How can I obtain a National Register plaque for my house?

Many sites listed in the National Register arrange for a commemorative plaque. Unfortunately, the National Register of Historic Places does not issue plaques as a result of listing. College Park residents have used the company below to purchase plaques:

Erie Landmark Company
637 Hempfield Hill Road
Columbia, PA 17512
1-800-874-7848

As far as phrasing is concerned, the National Register has no formal requirements or suggestions, but here are a few typical and accurate examples:

“This property has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of the Interior.”

You may want to indicate that the property is part of the historic district. In that case you may prefer:

“This property is part of the College Park Historic District, listed in the National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of the Interior.”

4) When and where does the College Park Historical Society meet?

Answer: We meet every 3rd Wednesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. at the College Park Historical Society building located at 3675 Auditorium Way, College Park, Georgia.
