I am a Historic Preservationist.
I love historic buildings, districts, landscapes, historic bridges, comprehensive planning, sidewalks, rehabilitation, revitalization of downtown, small and local businesses, proper infill, kitschy roadside Americana, blue highways, heritage tourism, National Parks, open space, maps, coffee and flamingos.
I define myself as a historic preservationist and I’m proud of it.
How do you define your profession?
Architectural Historian? Historian? Heritage preservationist? Heritage conservationist? Other?
Does it make a difference to you?
Please explain. I’m curious.
