It depends on the status and classification of the house. It may mean that you have to keep the outside of the house in line with it's historic status, but it may not in every case. Check out the historic register national website. They have a lot of information.

The National Register" is part of a program that identifies, evaluates and protects our national historic and and archaeological homes and resources. If you own a home like this, there will be restrictions on what can be done to the home in terms of remodeling  and so forth.

Buying historic homes can promise a lot of charm and can even show great purchase value.  One of the biggest reasons people consider historic homes is they usually have a wonderful location in the heart of a town or city.  That being said, there are important aspects to consider to be sure it is right for you.  As a Realtor, I have to recommend reviewing one of the best articles ever written on historic houses on the web.

Hello Sian. A National Register of Historic Homes status means that the home is considered as architecturally or historically important by the National Register of Historic Places. If you're a home buyer and you've had your eyes set on a historical home, you should know that there are certain restrictions that you need to follow so that you can keep its status. These are usually done to continuously preserve and protect the historical value of the home. I suggest that you check out this link for more information-- http://www.realtor.com/home-finance/homebuyer-information/buying-an-historic-home-what-you-need-to-know.aspx. 
Feel free to call me [Phone removed by Zillow moderator.] if you have need anything.

You can buy a home on the National Register and make changes however it will be removed from the list if you do not keep it within a cretin standard.

It means the house is in a "Hysterical" distric that often contains lots of restrictions of what can be done to the property. It is an older home registered with the historic outfit. Be sure to ask about restrictions if you are looking to buy.
