district status by Clinton Brown Company Architecture.
ALBANY — Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced Friday that 28 sites have been nominated to the State and National Registers of Historic Places, including Lockport's High and Locust Streets Historic District.

“New York’s rich history is among its greatest assets and remains a strong draw for this state’s fast-growing tourism industry,” Governor Cuomo said. “By nominating these sites as historic places, we are working to preserve that legacy for future generations, while also encouraging travelers  from every corner of the world  to visit and explore the sites that made New York the Empire State.”

The High and Locusts Streets Historic District encompasses an area of approximately 38 acres and four residential streets centrally located, about a half mile south of the Erie Canal, within the City of Lockport, according to its nomination form, prepared by Clinton Brown Company Architecture.

The neighborhood developed as a popular location for many of the city’s notable professionals, politicians and business people during a period of significant growth and today includes a highly intact collection of residential styles dating from 1840 through 1936.

The district's nomination means property owners within the district may be eligible for tax breaks and incentives once the recommendations are approved by the state historic preservation officer and listed on the New York State Register of Historic Places. Their inclusion on the state registry will automatically nominate them to the National Register of Historic Places.

Other local nominations announced by the governor on Friday include Public School #60 in Erie County and Oakwood Cemetery in Niagara Falls.
