Historic preservation

Historic preservation is an endeavor that seeks to preserve, conserve and protect buildings, objects, landscapes or other artifacts of historical significance. It tends to refer specifically to the preservation of the built environment, and not to preservation of, for example, primeval forests or wilderness. This term is generally used by English-speakers in the United States whereas the terms “heritage conservation” and “heritage preservation” are more common in the United Kingdom.
