The Rhode Island Historical Preservation & Heritage Commission was created by Rhode Island General Law §42-45-2 in 1968. The Commission is the state office for historic preservation and heritage programs. It is Rhode Island's only statewide historic preservation program, which identifies and protects historic and prehistoric sites, buildings, and districts. The Commission is responsible for conducting a statewide survey of historical sites and buildings; nominating significant properties to the National Register and the State Register of Historic Places; administering programs of financial aid including grants, loans, and tax credits; reviewing federal and state projects to assess their effect on cultural resources; and regulating archaeological exploration on state land and under state territorial waters. The Commission also develops programs to document, support, and celebrate the ethnic and cultural heritage of Rhode Island's people.
