ST. JOHN | Learn how properties become part of the National Registry of Historic Places during presentations today at the St. John Branch of the Lake County Public Library, 9450 Wicker Ave.
The programs are sponsored by the St. John Historical Society and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources Division of Historic Preservation and Archeology in Indianapolis.
Paul C. Diebold, team leader of survey and registration with the state, presents the programs from 10 to 11:30 a.m. and again from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
That agency has supervision of the Indiana properties named to the National Registry of Historic Places, said Rick Conway of the St. John Historical Society.
The material covered will include what property might be considered for placement on that national registry and what the designation means for the property owner.
One of St. John’s landmarks — the John Hack Cemetery at the old St. John the Evangelist Church along Joliet Street — is on the National Registry of Historic Places, Conway said.
