A Virginia Historic Landmark is a structure, site, or place designated as a landmark by the Virginia Department of Historic Resources.[1]

Inclusion process[edit]

Nominations for the Virginia Landmark Register are simultaneously processed for inclusion on the National Register for Historic Places. Both registries were formed in 1966.[1]

There are two parts to the selection process for designating landmarks:

  1. evaluation and nomination with the latter contingent on passing the evaluation stage.
  2. upon accepting the nomination for the state level landmark status, the State Review Board makes a recommendation on whether the State Historic Preservation Officer should submit it to the Keeper of the National Register of Historic Places in Washington, D.C.[2]
