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 this office. The first statewide plan for historic preservation was completed in 1970. We have completed our 2019-2029 historic preservation plan. The updated plan contains information on the state's socioeconomic environment, historic and cultural resources, threats to preservation, public outreach, preservation partners and updated goals and objectives.
