Heritage Site

A heritage site is a location designated by the governing body of a township, county, province, state or country as important to the cultural heritage of a community. The term usually refers to a non-moveable object such as a historic site or national monument, but it may include multiple sites grouped together such as fortifications or buildings situated along special roadways. Heritage sites are generally protected by the local town's protection agency but, for objects that are nationally or internationally protected, sometimes more than one agency is involved in their protection.

Famous quotes containing the words site and/or heritage:

    The present hour is always wealthiest when it is poorer than the future ones, as that is the pleasantest site which affords the pleasantest prospects.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    It seems to me that upbringings have themes. The parents set the theme, either explicitly or implicitly, and the children pick it up, sometimes accurately and sometimes not so accurately.... The theme may be “Our family has a distinguished heritage that you must live up to” or “No matter what happens, we are fortunate to be together in this lovely corner of the earth” or “We have worked hard so that you can have the opportunities we didn’t have.”
    Calvin Trillin (20th century)
