BISMARCK Ė The North Dakota State Historic Preservation Review Board will meet Friday, April 25 at 10 a.m. in the Legislative Assembly Room at the North Dakota Heritage Center in Bismarck. The meeting is open to the public. The board reviews nominations to the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) prior to their submission to the Keeper of the NRHP for official consideration.
The Hotel Brown in Flasher has had numerous names since it was built in 1910 but it is remembered as the local gathering place for travelers and locals, especially in the 1930s and 1940s. It is one of the oldest buildings in the community in its original location and it still serves the community by providing lodging.
The Freborg Homestead near Underwood includes the 10 acres where the farm buildings sit, most of which were built before 1940. This homestead retains a very high level of integrity and offers an excellent view into how many North Dakotan farms were established.
The National Register of Historic Places is the nationís list of properties considered worthy of preservation. The documentation process for listing demonstrates that resource is significant in some aspect of the nationís history. Contrary to some misconceptions about the National Register program, listing in it does not prevent owners from altering their property, restricting the use or sale of the property, or establish times requiring that the property must be open to the public. Entry into the National Register of Historic Places does give a property prestige, provides protection from federally-assisted projects, and provides eligibility for certain preservation financial incentives.
