Secretary's Register

The Secretary of State’s Register of Culturally Significant Property was founded in 2000 as a White House Millennium Project. It is similar to the National Register of Historic Places that is maintained by the Secretary of the Interior for domestic U.S. properties. It is an honorific listing of important diplomatic overseas architecture and property that figure prominently in our country’s international heritage. These include chanceries, U.S. ambassadors’ residences, and office buildings.

Currently, there are twenty-six Department properties on the Register.
