"Take only memories; leave only footprints." – Chief Seattle
Traveling to see the buildings and artifacts of human history that would otherwise be lost to father time has inspired a travel niche build around preservation and conservation. Whether enjoying a stay at a Medieval castle or a historic hotel in a city or town—or exploring a historic district or cemetery—communities and countries around the world are finding that preserving the past can sustain tourism. Preservation not only keeps building here for future generations, but provides a way for culture and history to flourish.
