Tennessee Preservation Trust

Heritage Tourism:

Tennessee is blessed with tremendous statewide historic and cultural assets including our beautiful landscapes, interesting downtowns and rural communities. And of course, all of the history and stories that make Tennessee the interesting state and people that we are today.

The Economic Value of Historic Preservation has been documented in many ways and TPT plans to work with partners to publish new Economic Impact data, along with important incentives that support these efforts in 2018.

Heritage Tourism efforts led by the Tennessee Department of Tourist Development, regional Tourism Councils, and local Economic Development and Tourism organizations are and will continue to be very successful across Tennessee.

TPT partners with these leaders, along with the Tennessee Historic Commission and the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development – Rural Development Tennessee Main Street and Downtowns programs, the National Trust for Historic Preservation and other national groups to preserve and redevelop our historic and cultural places as assets in these efforts.

Stay tuned in 2108 as we focus to expand these efforts.
