Historic areas in the United States National Park System

National Historic Sites, National Historic Parks, National Memorials, and certain other areas listed in the National Park system are historic landmarks of national importance that are highly protected already, often before the inauguration of the NHL program in 1960, and are often not also named NHLs "per se". Two additional Minnesota sites have national historical importance and have been designated as National Monuments by the National Park System.

Minnesota historic sites

The Minnesota Historical Society, a private, non-profit educational and cultural institution dedicated to preserving the history of the state of Minnesota, owns and operates 26 museums and historic sites. Most, but not all of these are National Historic Landmarks or Registered Historic Places.
