South Carolina law encourages state agencies and institutions to preserve National Register-listed properties they own or lease by establishing a consultation process with the Department of Archives and History (SHPO). The process is designed to incorporate historic preservation concerns with the needs of state projects. The Department is also charged with providing technical historic preservation training for state agency staff who are involved with the management of National Register properties.
