Since it was first published over 20 years ago, National Register Bulletin 38 has been used with greater or lesser success to record and evaluate the traditional significance tied to communities' long-term relationships with historic places. With the proposed update of this bulletin, it is an appropriate time to explore how "Traditional Cultural Properties" are defined, evaluated, and protected in the Pacific Northwest, and to illuminate some of the issues that are faced in addressing them during implementation of the National Historic Preservation Act. Panelists representing a cross-section of heritage professionals will briefly provide examples of how TCPs have been defined, evaluated, and protected, and raise issues pertinent to their use as a category of historic property.
Panelists: Doug Wilson, Eirik Thorsgard, Rick McClure, John Pouley, Eric OosahweeVoss, Scott S. Williams, Catherine Dickson, and Doug Deur
