Abstract

Once designated, historic districts are often more noted for their architecture, due to legal requirements and aesthetic concerns, than their history, which can be difficult to convey to the public. This article sets forth the administrative structure of historic districts in the U.S. and introduces several papers that deal thoughtfully with the various issues raised by how history is and can be conveyed in historic districts. © 2010 by The Regents of the University of California and the National Council on Public History.
