VERMILLION (AP) - The Bluff Historic District in Vermillion has been added to the National Register of Historic Places.

The National Register is the list of properties that the federal government deems worthy of recognition and preservation.

The South Dakota State Historical Society says the Bluff Historic District is a pocket of homes located south of Vermillion's downtown. It was nominated to be included in the register because of its architectural significance.

The district includes a wide variety of architectural styles, including Queen Anne Victorian and Colonial Revival homes built in the 1890s as the university and commercial district grew rapidly. Craftsman and Ranch homes are also part of the district.
