Historic preservation is a way of viewing our past with a look to our future, by preserving America's significant cultural heritage for future generations. Several federal agencies, such as the National Park Service, and the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, have been instrumental in designating significant historical sites and creating helpful resources on how to preserve the physical buildings. Several of these resources are on display in the department. Learn what historic preservation is, find out how to take action, and find educational resources by examining the several federal web sites and resources in the companion bibliography Historic Preservation: Preserving America One Building at a Time.
