Abstract

Abstract:

This article seeks to reinvigorate folklorists' engagement with historic preservation in the United States. It provides an overview of major historic preservation legislation and organizations, summarizes past benchmarks, and highlights selected case studies that successfully integrate folklore with historic preservation. A folklore lens focuses on both tangible and intangible cultural resources, shaping projects and policies that promote a more inclusive view of history, a richer sense of place, and a more sustainable future.
