Historic Savannah Foundation (HSF) has tweaked the model of measuring preservation's economic impacts, and its new report "Beyond Tourism" illustrates how to capture and present data that affirm the value of preservation. Thanks to a Moe Grant from the National Trust for Historic Preservation and consulting services from PlaceEconomics, HSF set about making the point that heritage tourism dollars—while welcome—often skew or water down the more fundamental value of preservation as a driver in the local economy. Daniel Carey and Don Rypkema discuss the premise, methodology and results of the project.
