BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota’s State Historic Preservation Review Board is meeting this week to review nominations to the National Register of Historic Places.

The National Register is the list of properties that the federal government deems worthy of recognition and preservation.

Properties being considered for nomination are Independence Congregational Church near Mandaree and the gravesite in McLean County of Karna Hanson. Officials say the gravesite is the only surviving place associated with a woman who received medical training in Sweden and brought those skills to the North Dakota prairie.

The Independence Congregational Church was an important gathering place on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation prior to the construction of the Garrison Dam.

The board meeting is Friday at the state Heritage Center in Bismarck.
