Historic places tell a community where it came from -- what previous generations achieved, what they believed, what they hope to be. By protecting these reminders of the past, preservation also builds the present and the future, since it saves valuable resources and recalls a community's  goals and dreams.

Good preservation does have costs -- but not preserving costs even more. Demolition has significant expenses: workers who tear down a historic place and carry away the debris must be paid, ugly landfills must be provided to receive contruction materials. Additional costs appear if a "replacement" goes in an undeveloped area, since building on open spaces requires creating and maintaining services like roads and sewers.

 

Distory our past has costs that extend far beyond money. Lost is the work of talented craftsmen who created beautiful, lasting buildings. Lost are the memories and pride that a community took in one of its landmarks. And lost is the opportunity for future generations to enjoy and to learn from the places that help us understand and appreciate where we came from.

 

Preservation does care about the past. It cares about honoring the achievements of previous generations, the places they lived and worked, and the history and achievements we now enjoy.

But preservation also cares about the present and the future. By protecting our past, it helps us remember how we came to be where we are and what we ought to do now. And it cares about giving future generations the same opportunity to enjoy beautiful buildings and landscapes that we have today.
