BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Two North Dakota sites have been added to the National Register of Historic Places.

The Ashley Jewish Homesteaders Cemetery near Ashley and the M.E. Beebe Historic District in Fargo are now part of a list with over 80,000 properties selected by the National Park Service. The thousands of sites are considered “worthy of preservation.”

The State Historical Society says the cemetery is the only remaining site associated with the McIntosh County Jewish farming community, the largest Jewish agricultural settlement in North Dakota.

The historic district in Fargo consists of six houses owned, designed or remodeled by renowned architect Milton E. Beebe, who started his practice in Buffalo, New York, but moved to Fargo in 1898.

Entering the National Register is the first step toward eligibility for federal preservation tax credits.
