What’s a National Historic Landmark?

National Historic Landmarks are exceptional places.
They include buildings, sites, memorials, and parks that have meaning to all Americans. The landmarks are registered and protected by the National Park Service with the goal of helping us understand our common heritage and conserve our treasures.

TN can boast of 29; 4 of them in Memphis: Beale Street, Chucalissa, Graceland, and Sun Record Co. That’s something to brag about!

The Cobblestone Landing is eligible to become #5. Recognized as the “best preserved of all the great river landings on the Ohio, Missouri and upper Mississippi rivers,” its proper restoration and maintenance are a key to riverfront revitalization.
