It is interesting to see all the buildings here on Mint Message that are a part of the National Register of Historic Places, or NRHP for short, that show all the forms of American history that can be preserved to help educate future generations about the past of the United States of America. So far, we have listed many historic places in the NRHP that are in the state of Alabama as well as several in Abbeville, SC, and a few in territories & locations overseas. When it comes to Mint Message, we will continue to list important historic locations in the United States, and we have one that is very interesting because it is the kind of building that most people would never consider to be of any cultural or historic value.
