Old buildings are witnesses to the aesthetic and cultural history of a city, helping to give people a sense of place and connection to the past. …
Recognizing the importance of old buildings to the public and to the country’s heritage, Congress enacted the National Historic Preservation Act in 1966. This act works to save historic buildings, explaining, “preservation of this irreplaceable heritage is in the public interest so that its vital legacy of cultural, educational, aesthetic, inspirational, economic, and energy benefits will be maintained and enriched for future generations of Americans.”City of Norwalk, CT (© 2022 https://tomorrow.norwalkct.org/news/importance-preserving-promoting-historic-buildings/)
