Are these monumental buildings eligible?

Hey follow Wayfinders,

I'm sort of new here and did some research about my town and it's 'possibly' eligible nominations. When I was searching for information, I found that there was a official website of the dutch government in which all local monumental buildings are shown with a discription and a location with picture. Now can I nominate these buildings?

Especially there's a old Cafe (which should be eligible cause it's a popular meeting place, unique old architecture and upstairs there's the local dancing school) and now I found that it had a historical function too.

    I have had very good luck getting historic buildings approved. I use all of the few characters we are given to explain their history and why they are significant. I note at the beginning of the description that they are listed on whichever historical registry applies and, if possible, I also include a link to that listing in the supporting information. I really love doing these and I've learned a lot in the process.

    Don't forget, of course, that historic buildings that are currently single-family houses aren't OK.

    Many things are eligible, it's up to you to use proper title, description, photos, supporting information to explain the nomination correctly. If you use a blurred photo of the Eiffel Tower with a description that says "metal thing" it will be rejected.
