Exact Creation Date



Established through a legislative act in 1971, the Maine Historic Preservation Commission is the state agency which functions as the State Historic Preservation Office in Maine. Under Federal law, the Commission is required to prepare a comprehensive state historic preservation plan which defines short and long-term goals and priorities for the preservation of Maine's cultural resources.

This document has been prepared according to guidelines developed by the National Park Service and identified needs for the State of Maine. Maine's historic preservation plan is intended to serve as a document by which information about the state's cultural resources can be presented, and as an operational tool through which a myriad of statewide preservation activities can be articulated.
