National Register of Historic Places listings in Franklin County, New York

Location of Franklin County in New York

List of the National Register of Historic Places listings in Franklin County, New York

This is intended to be a complete list of properties and districts listed on the National Register of Historic Places in Franklin County, New York. The locations of National Register properties and districts may be seen in a Google map by clicking on "Map of all coordinates".[1] Two areas that are further designated National Historic Landmarks are the county's portion of the Adirondack Forest Preserve and the Eagle Island Camp.

There are a total of 75 entries. Three of these Registered Historic Places are in fact historic districts which include a total of eighty buildings and other structures. To be listed on the National Register, sites must retain their historic integrity, they usually must be at least fifty years old, and their listing must be promoted – or at least not be opposed – by the current owner, so many historically important sites in the county are not listed.

This National Park Service list is complete through NPS recent listings posted December 5, 2014.[2]

  1. ^ The latitude and longitude information provided in this table was derived originally from the National Register Information System, which has been found to be fairly accurate for about 99% of listings. For about 1% of NRIS original coordinates, experience has shown that one or both coordinates are typos or otherwise extremely far off; some corrections may have been made. A more subtle problem causes many locations to be off by up to 150 yards, depending on location in the country: most NRIS coordinates were derived from tracing out latitude and longitudes off of USGS topographical quadrant maps created under the North American Datum of 1927, which differs from the current, highly accurate WGS84 GPS system used by most on-line maps. Chicago is about right, but NRIS longitudes in Washington are higher by about 4.5 seconds, and are lower by about 2.0 seconds in Maine. Latitudes differ by about 1.0 second in Florida. Some locations in this table may have been corrected to current GPS standards.
