State Historic Preservation Plan
The State Historic Preservation Office has responsibility under the National Historic Preservation Act for developing, and revising as needed, a statewide historic preservation plan. The plan guides the work of the State Historic Preservation Office, but it also provides a vision for historic preservation in the state.
The current state plan is Preserving Our Past to Build a Healthy Future: A Historic Preservation Plan for South Carolina 2007-2015 (PDF, 5 MB).
