Irreplaceable Heritage: Florida and the Preservation Act at 50
June 2 to November 27, 2016
The 1966 National Historic Preservation Act was created as the result of a spirited national conversation about both our past and our future. Thousands of citizens from around the country felt compelled to save the places that were meaningful to them and helped to shape historic legislation that created standards, incentives, and regulations that preserved our communities. The buildings, landmarks, and other tangible pieces of history included on the National Register of Historic Places help maintain the character of a community and foster a sense of pride, keeping the places that convey our shared culture and heritage intact. Preservation also revitalizes neighborhoods, helps manage urban growth, and aids the economy by creating tourist destinations.
