Historic Preservation

The VA Historic Preservation Office keeps information about VA's programs to comply with Federal preservation requirements.

VA is proud to highlight several projects that have protected and adapted historic properties to serve Veterans. From a 1950s office building in Louisiana to an ancient hallowed hilltop in Hawaii, from an 1880s mess hall in Kansas to a 1916 juvenile court in California, heritage sites have been saved and enhanced.

This short video illustrates the rich history of VA Medical Centers and national cemeteries, and highlights past challenges, successes, and future opportunities for the preservation and reuse of VA’s historic properties.

Technical Information


Researchers of History and Geneology please note: This office deals with building preservation issues, not historical or genealogical research. The Department of Veterans Affairs does not maintain veterans military service or patient residency records. For Burial Records in VA National Cemeteries only, go to VA Nationwide Gravesite Locator.

The main repository for Veterans-related records is the National Archives and Records Administration*. For basic Genealogical information, visit the Genealogists/Family Historians* site. For Military Service or Veterans Pension Records, visit the Military Record Requests* or Veterans and their Families* sites. Also, visit National Archives Locations*. For other information regarding records, see Obtaining Military Records. We hope this provides you with successful research options.
