During its Oct. 18, 2017 annual meeting, the Delaware State Review Board for Historic Preservation presented certificates recognizing five properties and one historic district that were listed in the National Register of Historic Places during 2017. The National Register is the U.S. government’s official list of districts, sites, buildings, structures and objects deemed worthy of preservation at the local, state or national level.
