The Historic Places Act 1954 was an Act of the New Zealand Parliament. It established the New Zealand Historic Places Trust for the purpose of preserving, marking and recording places of historic interest in New Zealand. The organisation has since been renamed to Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga.

One of the early structures that was covered by a heritage order was the Pencarrow Head Lighthouse at the entrance to Wellington Harbour, which was added to the register at its centenary in 1959.
