Heritage site


Heritage site

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