Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the New York State Board for Historic Preservation has recommended adding 17 properties, resources and districts to the State and National Registers of Historic Places.
Gov. Cuomo said the nominations reflect the striking diversity of New York State's history, and range from the city's first cooperative apartment building to a resort community developed by African Americans on Long Island.
"These nominations pay tribute to some of the most exceptional and fascinating sites in New York State history," Gov. Cuomo said. "By placing these landmarks on the State and National Registers of Historic Places, we can ensure these locations have the funding they need to preserve and promote the very best of New York's past, present and future."
The following locations have been nominated:
Whedon-Schumacher House, Syracuse
Waterloo High School, Waterloo
Church of St. Gabriel the Archangel, Paul Smiths
McNaught Family Farm, Bovina

Once the recommendations are approved by the state historic preservation officer, the properties are listed on the New York State Register of Historic Places and then nominated to the National Register of Historic Places, where they are reviewed and, once approved, entered on the National Register. More information and photos of the nominations are available on the Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation website.
