National Register of Historic Places listings in the United States Virgin Islands

Map of the United States Virgin Islands

This is a list of the buildings, sites, districts, and objects listed on the National Register of Historic Places in the United States Virgin Islands. There are currently 86 listed sites spread across 16 of the 3 islands/districts of the United States Virgin Islands. Four sites are additionally designated National Historic Landmarks and two others as National Historic Sites.

This National Park Service list is complete through NPS recent listings posted December 5, 2014.[1]

Numbers of listings

The following are approximate tallies of current listings in the United States Virgin Islands on the National Register of Historic Places. These counts are based on entries in the National Register Information Database as of April 24, 2008[2] and new weekly listings posted since then on the National Register of Historic Places web site.[3] There are frequent additions to the listings and occasional delistings and the counts here are not official. Also, the counts in this table exclude boundary increase and decrease listings which modify the area covered by an existing property or district and which carry a separate National Register reference number.
