The National Historic Landmarks program has announced its annual photo competition!
The subject of the photograph must be a National Historic Landmark. The Milwaukee VA National Soldiers Home Historic District received this honor in 2011, making it a perfect landmark to feature in submissions!
National Historic Landmarks are our country’s most exceptional historic properties. These are nationally significant historic places designated by the Secretary of the Interior because they possess exceptional value or quality in illustrating or interpreting the heritage of the United States. Today, fewer than 2,500 historic places bear this national distinction, with only 41 in Wisconsin.
The contest runs through Wednesday, June 13. For more information and contest rules, click here. Interested in learning more about Wisconsin’s National Historic Landmarks? Visit http://www.wisconsinhistory.org/archstories/nhls/index.asp.
