ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A 220-year-old former tavern and a monastery in the Southern Tier are among 22 sites in New York being nominated for state and national historic registries.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the list Friday. All 22 were nominated by New York’s Board for Historic Preservation.

If approved by the state preservation officer the sites will be considered for inclusion on the National Register. The distinction makes the properties eligible for preservation grants and tax credits.

The list includes the Mount Saviour Monastery in Pine City in the Southern Tier, which has been used as a farm since German immigrants purchased the site in 1865; and the Denton Homestead in Nassau County, a former tavern and farmhouse built in 1795.
