December 17, 2018

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — The Kentucky Historic Preservation Review Board is considering 10 nominations for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places.

The panel meets Monday in Frankfort to review nominations before they are sent to the National Park Service, which issues a final decision on whether to list the locations.

This year’s nominations include an area in Danville that encompasses 13 African-American residences dating from 1814 to 1950 that reflect an evolution of housing styles; the Puritan Apartment Hotel in Louisville, which was constructed in phases between 1914 and 1958; and the Captain Benjamin Johnson River House in Boone County, which was built in 1818.

Nominations for the National Register can include buildings, objects, structures, districts, and archaeological sites that have significance in architecture, engineering, American history, or culture.
