We preserve buildings to tell our stories, provide continuity in our culture, and stabilize our structures for public safety. In the past century, scientific and historical methodological approaches have been developed through national and international policies and legislation to effectively preserve and reuse existing and historic buildings. The primary purpose of "What Is Historic?" is to discuss how to determine what makes a building or site historic, how to evaluate historic and existing buildings, how to evaluate their conditions, and how to develop their design and preservation approaches and processes. This course is the second of the five-part Historic Preservation series. Each section can be taken as an individual course.
