Historic preservation activity in Pennsylvania is impressive and expanding. This comment examines nine reported Pennsylvania historic preservation cases arising under state and federal laws. Historic district ordinances and the effects of listing in the National Register of Historic Places are discussed, among other topics, in relation to themes such as the demolition of irreplaceable historic resources and the linkage between preservation of historically and architecturally significant buildings with community revitalization. The status of historic preservation law in Pennsylvania is evaluated through an examination of these nine cases and the themes they illustrate.
