The US Interior Department recognizes 24 new National Historic Landmarks that promotes the diverse history and culture of America. According to its press release, the National Park Service, through the National Historic Landmarks Program, recognizes historic properties of exceptional value to the nation and promotes the preservation efforts of federal, state, and local agencies and Native American tribes, as well as those of private organizations and individuals.

From houses to the great outdoors and churches to machine shops, here's the new Historical Landmarks of the US specified by the organization.

Among them are homes such as Medgar and Myrlie Evers House, Neutra Studio and Residences and Keim Homestead. Outdoor spaces that have received a nod from the National Park Service are Chicano Park, New York State Barge Canal and Kimball Village Site.

Buildings which have received positive acclaims from the group are the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, W. A. Young & Sons Foundry and Machine Shop and Our Lady of Guadalupe Mission Chapel. For a full list of the new National Historic Landmarks, see here.

U.S. Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell said, "These 24 new designations depict different threads of the American story that have been told through activism, architecture, music, and religious observance." "Their designation ensures future generations have the ability to learn from the past as we preserve and protect the historic value of these properties and the more than 2,500 other landmarks nationwide," he added.

The National Park Service will be celebrating 200 years of service and endeavors to promote America's diverse history even more so. National Park Service Acting Director Michael T. Reynolds said, "As the National Park Service kicks off its second century of stewardship of America's natural and historic treasures, we look forward to connecting new generations of Americans to the places and stories recognized as National Historic Landmarks today."
