A historic property can meet one or several of these Criteria to be considered for the National Register of Historic Places.  The Bureau of Land Management Hollister Field Office has one historic property listed to the National Register of Historic Places called "Birdwell Rock."  This property is a prehistoric rock art site in western Fresno County and is associated with archaeoastronomic phenomena.

Although not managed or maintained by the Bureau of Land Management, the former "Fort Ord Station Veterinary Hospital" owned by the City of Marina, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and represents a siginifcant part of Fort Ord's history related to the build-up to America's entry into World War II and values associated with Fort Ord National Monument.
