Federal Historic Property Stewardship

The issuance of Executive Order 13287 (EO 13287), Preserve America, on March 3, 2003, marked a defining moment in the federal stewardship of historic properties. Recognizing the broad public interest in the management of federally owned historic properties, the EO encouraged agencies to manage these historic properties as valuable assets that can support agency missions and also stimulate local economic development. Section 3 of EO 13287 establishes an accountability system to gauge agency implementation of the mandates of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) and the EO.
