Find a monument to photograph

Attend a photo walk in your home town »

  1. Zoom or enter your location on the map below.
  2. Look for red pins. A red pin means that there is no photograph of this site.
  3. Click on the pin for more information about the monument.

You can find NRHP sites in your area by clicking on your state in the map below. There will be a list of counties in the state on the page. Click on a county name and you’ll be taken to a list of the NRHP sites in that county. These are the sites that are eligible for the contest and the ones we hope you’ll photograph.

You may also notice that there are some sites that do not have photos yet. These are the sites that we’d really love for you to photograph. Most of them will have an address and geographical coordinates. Click on the coordinates to see a map of the site’s location. That’s where you need to go to take the photograph.

Some sites already have photographs included in their table entry. Think you can take a better photo? Please do, and upload it to Wikimedia Commons!  You can even take multiple photos of the same site – interior and exterior shots, specific architectural details, different times of day, different angles. While there is no need for multiple shots of the same feature, from the same angle, at the same time of day, it’s good practice to take several shots and upload the best.
