National Historic Landmarks and Geological Parks

These are designations for an officially recognized area of national historic or geological significance(s) in the United States. An NHS usually contains a single historical feature directly associated with its subject. A related but separate designation, the National Historic Park (NHP) or National Historic Site (NHS) is an area that generally extends beyond single properties or buildings, and its resources include a mix of historic and sometimes significant natural features.

This section also includes National Historic Landmarks and National Geological Parks.
