The Register of Very Special Places (RVSP) is a project undertaken by TAUNY to create an inventory or register of sites in communities throughout the North Country that are special to the life of those communities. Called "cultural landmarking," with this project we encourage and train local citizens to nominate and document places such as diners, general stores, barber shops, Grange halls, and community gathering places that have special meaning to those who use them.

The Register is a central repository for information about the sites and a resource for historic preservation activities. The Registerís website module includes profiles and photos of many of the sites currently on the Register, a guestbook for people anywhere to submit favorite stories about sites, and an open invitation to North Country residents to nominate sites for TAUNYís consideration. It presents detailed information about documentation techniques to make a record of the sites for the community and the Register.

Working with North Country Public Radio, TAUNY developed a series of radio programs on selected RVSP cultural landmarks.
