TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — A Florida-cracker style cottage near Daytona Beach, two mid-century modern houses in the Gainesville area and a Kissimmee monument with rocks from all 50 states are among the Florida properties that are newly-listed on the National Park Service's National Register of Historic Places.

Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner said recently that six Florida places had been added to the register.

They include the Meyer-Davis House and Hasty Cottage in Ponce Inlet near Daytona Beach, the Hill Crest house in Lake County west of Orlando, the Cabbage Key Historic District near Fort Myers, the Weil-Cassisi House in Gainesville, the Dan Branch House near Gainesville and the Monument of States in Kissimmee.

Florida has more than 1,700 listings on the National Register.
