National Register Standard Plaque

National Register of Historic Places Bronze and Aluminum Plaques

Keeping history alive is one of the great privileges of living in an older community or home. The National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 was established for communities and residents across the country to provide a framework to identify, evaluate, register and protect significant historic and archaeological properties. Central to this framework is the National Register of Historic Places which is the nation's official list of cultural resources worthy of preservation administered by the National Park Service (NPS), Department of the Interior. After getting your property listed on the National Register, you'll want to consider how to showcase your status to the community. Erie Landmark Company specializes in producing high-quality aluminum and bronze historic house plaques and historic property plaques that will elegantly display your home or property's national registry status. Our classic and beautiful bronze plaques are crafted with durable and attractive bronze, and we use a specialized no-bake sand casting method that gives the bronze an excellent finish. Once you’ve designed your historic plaque, we can have it crafted and delivered to your door in just four to six weeks.

Why Choose an Aluminum or Bronze National Register Plaque?

Historic places listed in the register include districts, sites, buildings, homes, structures and objects that have American historical, architectural, archaeological, engineering and cultural significance. Plaques are not provided to homeowners or historic buildings by the National Park Service, so many sites and homeowners decide to commemorate this type of heritage with their own national register plaque to:
  • Show community pride
  • Become a center for historical tourism
  • Contribute an educational community tool
Bronze has typically been used to craft historic markers, signage, memorials and architecture because of its durability, attractiveness and corrosion- and weather-resistance. For your historic home, bronze is the perfect addition to give your home a traditional appearance and can easily complement your home’s classic and unique architecture.
