- ^ The latitude and longitude information provided in this table was derived originally from the National Register Information System, which has been found to be fairly accurate for about 99% of listings. For about 1% of NRIS original coordinates, experience has shown that one or both coordinates are typos or otherwise extremely far off; some corrections may have been made. A more subtle problem causes many locations to be off by up to 150 yards, depending on location in the country: most NRIS coordinates were derived from tracing out latitude and longitudes off of USGS topographical quadrant maps created under the North American Datum of 1927, which differs from the current, highly accurate WGS84 GPS system used by Google maps. Chicago is about right, but NRIS longitudes in Washington are higher by about 4.5 seconds, and are lower by about 2.0 seconds in Maine. Latitudes differ by about 1.0 second in Florida. Some locations in this table may have been corrected to current GPS standards.
- ^ The D. D. Martin House Complex is listed in addition to the Darwin D. Martin House which it includes, and the Buffalo State Asylum for the Insane is listed here in addition to the Buffalo State Hospital. Both pairings involve a NRHP listing and an NHL designation. The areas may be different and it may be the case that only portions of a larger area was eligible for the National Historic Landmark designation. Further information may show that these separate listings should be combined in this table. Cases where an NRHP listing is revised by a boundary increase or decrease are listed as single entries in this table.
