Do Not Migrate

NCPTT has prepared an interactive map showing Gulf Coast cultural resources within the Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) zone. This zone is established by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to provide a summary of “coastal resources that are at risk if an oil spill occurs nearby.” The map below plots resources listed on the National Register of Historic Places and includes National Park Service sites and National Historic Landmarks. Click the plotted points for more detailed information.
