National Register Plaques are placed on buildings and in places that are listed in the National Register of Historical Places. Below are images of some of the more frequently used wordings and designs for these plaques.
Plaque Sizing Options
Some of our National Register plaques (mostly the more elaborate designs) are fixed size - that is, they are cast from an existing pattern. These ornate fixed size plaques are more cost effective than other designs but the text must fit on the standard sizes available. Others, can be manufactured in any size that you require.
These plaques are available with any wording you request. If you ARA looking for a National Register Plaque, we can off this guidance; When we last looked, the National Park Service web site stated, "As far as phrasing is concerned, the National Register has no formal requirements or suggestions..." Therefore, we are pleased to customize your plaque with the text you desire. We do recommend that if you are purchasing a plaque describing listing in a local register of Historic Places, that you verify the plaque wording that they may require.
Some of the images use the phrase "This
Property Has Been Placed On The National
Register of Historical Places". Others use the phrase "This Property Has Been Listed
In The National Register of Historical Places". It is up to you as to which phrasing you prefer.
