As we approach the 50-year mark of the enactment of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), the Preservation Leadership Forum has enlisted the help of preservation practitioners to take a close look at how the NHPA is used to protect historic places.

We started off with a look at Section 106, a valuable tool has saved thousands of historic sites across the country, that only works as long as all players—preservationists and federal agencies—clearly understand Section 106 and their role in the process.

This summer we are continuing the series with an examination of Section 110, the provision of the NHPA that requires federal agencies to establish a historic preservation program for the identification and protection of historic properties under their direct control or ownership.
