The National Historic Landmarks Program is an initiative administered by the National Park Service to identify national significant historic places that possess exceptional value or quality in illustrating or interpreting the heritage of the United States. While there are currently more than 2,500 historic properties throughout the country bearing this distinction, only a small percentage include maritime cultural heritage and only seven include shipwrecks. While many individual National Historic Landmarks exemplify the various interactions between human beings and the sea, none of the individual properties previously designated as National Historic Landmarks are reflective of the larger, multicomponent maritime cultural landscape.  This paper discusses the development of a theme study and preparation of a National Historic Landmark nomination for a Maritime Cultural Landscape identified within Biscayne National Park in Homestead, Florida.
