The Economic Effect of National Register Listing

Date: 1994

Does a property being listed in the National Register of Historic Places increase the economic value of the property? It would be useful if the clear cut answer were “yes.” Even an unambiguous “no” would at least put the issue to rest. Unfortunately, providing such an answer would violate a basic Einsteinian tenet, “Things should be made as simple as possible but not more so.”
