Tennessee's Plan for Historic Preservation

 As the state agency primarily responsible for the stewardship of historic resources in the State of Tennessee, the State Historic Preservation Office (THC)  has taken the lead in efforts to develop a comprehensive plan for historic preservation in the state. The development of such a plan is a requirement of the provisions of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, the provisions of which are carried out in Tennessee  by the office. The  first statewide plan for historic preservation was completed in 1970. In 2019 the office is revising the preservation plan to guide the state's historic preservation efforts through 2028. The current plan that is being revised can be read by going to the link below.
