The Atchafalaya Heritage Area has been designated by Congress as a National Heritage Area.
It is a great honor for a property to be listed on the prestigious National Register of Historic Places. This status can be very useful in helping to save historic buildings and sites because people typically hold Register properties in high regard and think twice about insensitive alteration and demolition.
The National Register program also provides a measure of protection from federally assisted projects. For more information, visit the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation’s web site. http://www.achp.gov
