The National Register of Historic Places is the nation's official list of cultural resources, 50 years or older, worthy of preservation.

This Register is part of a nationwide program to coordinate and support public and private efforts to identify, evaluate and protect our historic and archaeological places.

The Register only recognizes (honors) a place's historic character and "does not place restrictions" on the property. The list includes districts, sites, buildings, structures and objects significant in American history.

These are the buildings in Bullock County on the list sent from the Alabama Historical Commission. Notice that it includes a district, house, school and church.
