- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Roger Roper's comment about Paul Bunyan's shirt is ridiculous. The National Register and does not have regulations about how it should be painted, it only looks at how the structure meets the criteria.
If, for some reason, the structure is significantly changed so that it no longer meets the criteria or fails to keep it's historic context, then it can be removed from the National Register. Changing the color of the paint would not cause it to lose it's NR status.
The majority of rules and laws applying to historic preservation are enacted at the state or local level. Local codes and landmark boards determine what you can and can't do with a historic structure.
