Fifty years ago, when historic places were being lost and destroyed with virtually no consideration for their importance to communities, the drafters of the National Historic Preservation Act envisioned a future where historic places are a living part of our community life. In celebrating the many successes of the Act, we have the opportunity not only to revisit the visionary goals of 1966 but also to forge our own vision of the future 50 years from now.#Diversity #Sustainability #whypreserve
