Our Historic Landmarks

 

To preserve our history, the Dansville community has worked to honor and save the landmarks that have been such an important part of our growth.  Properties listed in the Register include our downtown district, sites, buildings, structures, and objects that are significant in both ours & American history, architecture, archeology, engineering, and culture. 

 

The State and National Registers are the official lists of buildings, structures, districts, landscapes, objects and sites that are significant in the history, architecture, archeology and culture of both New York State and the nation. Once the recommendations are approved by the state historic preservation officer, the properties are then listed on the New York State Register of Historic Places and nominated to the National Register of Historic Places, where they are reviewed and, once approved, entered on the National Register.
