Preservation is the process of protecting the form, integrity and materials of a resource(s).

Independence National Historical Park is the steward of many different kinds of cultural resources, including historic buildings, artifacts, structures and landscapes. As with all of the other parks in the National Park Service, our preservation projects must comply with national standards and guidelines. These guidelines exist to protect resources from any harm or negative impacts. Cultural Resource professionals reference these standards and guidelines prior to any projects that might change historic structures or landscapes.

Preservation is a priority at Independence National Historical Park. A team of professionals is responsible for the preservation and rehabilitation of these park resources. These professionals include architects, landscape architects, archeologists, historians, archivists and architectural historians.
