National Historic Preservation Act of 1966
October 20, 2016

In the fifty projects depicted here, BBB celebrates the opportunities we have had as stewards of historic buildings and sites on some of the more than 90,000 places listed on the National Register of Historic Places. We look forward to the future of preservation that continues to face the challenges of a growing and diversifying nation.

“The historical and cultural foundations of the Nation should be preserved as a living part of our community life and development in order to give a sense of orientation to the American people … the preservation of this irreplaceable heritage is in the public interest so that its vital legacy of cultural, educational, aesthetic, inspirational, economic, and energy benefits will be maintained and enriched for future generations of Americans”
