District and regional assemblies may designate places of historic significance within their boundaries as Historic Sites. At least 50 years must elapse after a place achieves historic significance before it is recognized as a Historic Site. A Historic Site does not have to have original buildings or structures surviving in order to be designated. The assembly secretary shall report newly designated Historic Sites to the general secretary, reporting the action taken, information on the site, and the site’s significance.
District and regional assemblies can ask the General Assembly to designate places of denomination-wide significance as Historic Landmarks. Nominations are restricted to previously designated Historic Sites. The general superintendents or a committee appointed for the purpose of screening nominations must concur with a nomination before it receives General Assembly consideration.
The general secretary shall keep a register of Historic Sites and Landmarks and publicize them appropriately (paragraph 327.2). (2009)
