What is Historic Preservation?

According to The National Park Service, historic preservation is a conversation with our past about our future. It provides us with opportunities to ask what is important in our history and what parts of our past can we preserve for the future.

Through historic preservation, we look at history in different ways, ask different questions of the past and learn new things about our history and ourselves. Historic preservation is an important way for us to transmit our understanding of the past to future generations.

Our Nation’s history has many facets and historic preservation helps tell these stories.
