Governor Cuomo announced Friday that the New York State Board for Historic Preservation recommended adding 21 properties, resources and districts to the State and National Registers of Historic Places. 

The Registers of Historic Places are the official lists of buildings, structures, districts, landscapes, objects and sites significant in the history, architecture, archeology, and culture of New York State and the nation. 

Of the 21 recommended, four of them are here in Western New York, according to to the governor's office. 

Those buildings include: 

  • The Kreiner Malt House and Grain Elevator, Buffalo
  • Shea's Seneca Building, Buffalo
  • Ziegele-Phoenix Refrigeration House & Office, Buffalo
  • Temple Beth Zion, Buffalo

Once approved by the state historic preservation officer, the recommended properties are listed on the state register and nominated to the National Register of Historic Places. 

They then are reviewed to be placed on the national register.
