The New York State Board of Historic Preservation has recommended the addition of 22 properties and places to the State and National Registers of Historic Places.

Included on the list of properties is the Bagg's Square East Historic District in Utica.

Properties listed on State and National Registers are eligible for various public preservation programs, including matching state grants and federal historic rehabilitation tax credits.

"New York's history is this country's history, and with the nomination of these landmarks and sites we will help ensure these parts of this state's rich heritage are maintained and preserved for generations to come," Governor Andrew Cuomo said.
