Most people think the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Rehabilitating Historic Buildings are all about what NOT to do to a historic building. Instead, by looking at what you CAN do under the Rehab Standards and treating your historic buildings the right way, rehabilitation easily fits into community placemaking efforts. Learn the ten Rehab Standards and how incorporating them into your community's transformation strategies will also transform the way you think about your community's history, vitality, and long-term sustainability.
