Praise for the First Edition . . .

"A single volume offering a synopsis of the history of the preservation movement, an analysis of the relevant data, and a discussion of the key issues facing preservationists . . . informative and well written." —The Public Historian.

William Murtagh, the first Keeper of the National Register of Historic Places, presents an effective portrait of the preservation movement by looking into the values underlying the efforts to safeguard America's architectural heritage, including the development of legislation and court action. A section on the National Trust for Historic Preservation explains how this private, non-profit organization created in the 1940s has expanded its services and goals parallel with changes in the national preservation movement.

Three useful appendices give a sampling of the pertinent federal legislation, the National Register's criteria for evaluation, and the Secretary of the Interior's standards and guidelines. A chronology of important dates in the history of preservation from the eighteenth century through the present encapsulates the movement's achievements.

75 black-and-white photographs depict the beautiful and intriguing architecture of buildings all across the country, as Keeping Time investigates every aspect of the national picture, including historic house museums, outdoor museums, historic districts, rural and landscape preservation, rehabilitation, and adaptive use.
