Each state has a preservation program based on the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended (16 U.S.C. 470f), but tailored to its own needs and organizational structure. New Hampshire's state historic preservation program began in 1974 as the State Historic Preservation Office in the Department of Resources and Economic Development. In 1985 it became the Division of Historical Resources (DHR) and was moved to a new department, renamed the Department of Cultural Resources in 1998, which also includes the State Council on the Arts, the State Library, the Film and Television Office, the Commission on Native American Affairs, and Curatorial Services.
