Preservation and Urban Revitalization

January 01, 1979

This illustrated report summarizes the findings of a 1979 ACHP study on the contributions of historic preservation activities to urban revitalization. The data were derived from studying four historic districts - Old Town in Alexandria, Virginia; The Strand in Galveston, Texas; the Savannah Historic District in Georgia; and Pioneer Square in Seattle, Washington. The report summarizes the esthetic, economic, and social benefits of historic preservation in each district.
