Preservation & Shared Use

The shared use of historic sites, house museums, and other historic properties provides expansive and sustainable public benefit by bringing new uses—both commercial and nonprofit—to historic properties while engaging and expanding audiences. The shared-use model demonstrates that dynamic interpretation of a site’s history can be creatively integrated to keep its contemporary functions resonant with its past. At a shared-use site, all operations incorporate preservation and interpretation, and diverse stories, told through a variety of media, engage broad audiences.
