    • It is the location of or is associated in a significant way with an historic event with a significant effect upon the community, city, state, or nation
    • It is associated in a significant way with the life of a person important in the history of the city, state, or nation
    • It is associated in a significant way with a significant aspect of the cultural, political, or economic heritage of the community, city, state or nation
    • It embodies the distinctive visible characteristics of an architectural style, period, or a method of construction
    • It is an outstanding work of a designer or builder
    • Because of its prominence of spatial location, contrasts of siting, age, or scale, it is an easily identifiable visual feature of its neighborhood or the city and contributes to the distinctive quality or identity of such neighborhood or city
