Advisory Council on Historic Preservation

As outlined in Executive Order 86-17, signed Aug. 4, 1986, the Missouri Advisory Council on Historic Preservation consists of 12 members, appointed by the governor with the advice and consent of the senate. By state law, the council consists of professionals such as architects, historians, archaeologists and interested laypersons.

The Missouri Advisory Council meets several times a year to vote on finalized drafts of National Register nominations submitted to the State Historic Preservation Office. All meetings are open to the public and links to the draft nominations are posted below before the meeting occurs. The council also comments on unmarked human burial cases. After each council meeting, the council's decision will be posted below.

Responsibilities

The Missouri Advisory Council on Historic Preservation plays a key role in preserving Missouri's cultural heritage. Both the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 as amended and the Missouri Revised Statutes Chapter 253, RSMo require that nominations to the National Register of Historic Places be reviewed by a board consisting of 12 citizens, appointed by the Governor. This council reviews all Missouri nominations to the National Register of Historic Places and advises the state’s historic preservation officer. The council also provides advice, guidance and professional recommendations to the state historic preservation officer in carrying out the responsibilities of the National Historic Preservation Act and other duties, including administering Missouri’s Unmarked Human Burial Sites Act, as described under sections 194.400 to 194.410, RSMo.
