National Register Nomination Forms and Photos
for New York State Synagogues are Now Available On-line
For over thirty years historians and preservationists have been researching and nominating historic synagogues in New York State to the National Register of Historic Places. At present, there are several score former and active synagogue buildings on the register, which recognizes American historic buildings and sites of special significance. Now, the New York State Historic and Preservation Office (SHPO) has updated its on-line database (SPHINX) to allow access to thousands of national register nomination forms, including those on file for synagogues.  These forms generally carry the most detailed descriptive and historical information about particular sites and/or historic districts.  While the standards of research hand writing have varied over the decades, the quality and reliability of the information in these reports is usually high.  Because, however, the mission of the writer of the form is in part to make a strong case for a building’s qualification for National Register designation, sometimes the significance of buildings can be overstated.

ISJM has now begun to provide on its website (www.isjm.org) direct links to National Register nomination forms in the SHPO database.  ISJM will continue to expand this survey as more forms are posted in New York and elsewhere, and as new links to other landmark designation forms are identified for other states, and for localities.

State Preservation Historical Information Network Exchange (SPHINX)

The newly revamped SPHINX system, available on the State and National Registers of Historic Places web page provides the user with digital images of documents that include more than 4,000 State and National Register of Historic Places nomination forms and their associated photographs. Users can search for nominations by property name, location, county, National Register criteria, area(s) of significance, and/or historic use as well as by other criteria. This is not a complete set of New York's register nominations; only those currently in the possession of the New York SHPO and considered to be public documents.
