Dear Sister Baum:
It is my pleasure as Director of the Division of Archives,
History, and Records Management to notify you that the O'Reilly
House is being nominated to the National Register of Historic
Places in accordance with procedures established by the National
Historic Preservation Act in 1966. As you know, the National
Register is the official schedule of the nation's cultural
property that is worth saving. Of course, this action in no
way affects your property rights.
The nomination is considered for inclusion by the Keeper
of the National Register of Historic Places in Washington. This
procedure of evaluation ranges in duration from one to six months.
We will notify you immediately when we receive word (if the property
should be accepted).
I have enclosed a small pamphlet explaining the National
Register in some detail but if you have any additional questions
please call me (904/488-1480) or one of my staff members, Randy F.
Nimnicht, Historic Preservationist (904/488-7365) collect.

Dear Mrs. O'Brien,
After so many months I
had almost forgotten about all
the work we did last year on
the papers for the O'Reilly
House. But finally something
positive has come of it. I'm
enclosing a copy of the letter
from Tallahassee as I know
you'll be interested.
Thanks very much for all
Sister Rita Baum, SSJ
