The Power of Preservation 
It is easy to understand the economic benefits of historic preservation. Preservation enhances our local economies by creating jobs and household income, leveraging capital, and encouraging reinvestment in local communities.  And, the benefits of preservation are not just economic. Preservation supports long–term community sustainability by revitalizing neighborhoods, raising and protecting property values, and preserving cultural traditions. Historic preservation also helps the environment by promoting energy efficiency and the conservation of natural resources. 

The following links provide information to preservation's significant economic benefits, both at the local  and the state level and also for the property owners and users of historic properties.
