Welcome to the California historic sites task force of the Historic sites WikiProject!


This task force includes coverage of all historic sites in the U.S. state of California, including the state's own California Historical Landmarks and various municipalities' historic registers. It includes coverage of Yosemite National Park, a World Heritage Site (covered also by WP:WHS), and places listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places (which are also covered by WP:NRHP). We fall within scope of WikiProject California (see wp:CAL and its talk page wt:CAL).
