Zippin Pippin Listed on National Register

Second to Last Hump, Zippin Pippin, MemphisI received word from Denise Parkinson that the Zippin Pippin has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. What does this mean?
  • Listing in the National Register honors the property by recognizing its importance to its community, State, or the Nation.
  • Private property owners can do anything they wish with their property, provided that no Federal license, permit, or funding is involved.
  • Owners have no obligation to open their properties to the public, to restore them, or even to maintain them, if they choose not to do so.
  • Federal agencies whose projects affect a listed property must give the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation an opportunity to comment on the project and its effects on the property.
  • Owners of listed properties may be able to obtain Federal historic preservation funding, when funds are available. In addition, Federal investment tax credits for rehabilitation and other provisions may apply.
[emphasis mine].

Many congratulations and thanks to Judith Johnson, Denise, Steve Mulroy and the Save Libertyland crew for this great work.
