Historic structures and sites are the visual manifestation of the story of a community's people, places, and activity. The preservation of these resources helps a community retain a sense of place and identity. Prehistoric and historic archaeological sites, such as Indian sites, cellar holes, and cemeteries, also contribute to the understanding of a community's past like no written record can.
