Overview

Historic sites are visited by millions of people every year, but most of these places perpetuate the public notion that men have been the primary agents of historical change. This book reveals that historic sites and buildings have much to tell us about women's history. It documents women's contributions to the historic preservation movement at places such as Mount Vernon and explores women's history at several existing landmarks such as historic homes, as wells as in a wider array of cultural landscapes ranging from nurses' residences in Montreal to prostitutes' quarters in Los Angeles. The book includes essays on six exemplary projects that have advanced the integration of women's history into historic preservation and closes with three perspectives on preservation policy and practice.

National in scope but applicable in any locality, Restoring Women's History through Historic Preservation combines the most important recently published information with the best new research and covers many national, state, and local initiatives of the past decade. It collects in one volume the seminal work of twenty academic historians, preservationists, and professionals at parks and monuments throughout the country who examine practical ways to represent women's history through historic preservation programs.

Over the past several decades, work in the areas of women's history and historic preservation has done much to change not only how we regard history but also how we might broaden the very notion of what we consider historical. This volume reflects a growing commitment to historic preservation and shows how practitioners in both fields can benefit from an exchange of insights and create more effective public history.

Annals of Iowa
The authors... address interpretive issues at existing historical sites, but they also emphasize the need for preservation of places that will further enhance the historical presence of women... Essays in Restoring Women's History through Historic Preservation... promise to be important resources for current and future preservationists.

— Jennifer Pustz

Women's Review of Books
The full inclusion of women's experiences into the nation's past has the potential to rewrite history for everyone.

— Martha Norkunas

Indiana Magazine of History
As the essays in this anthology testify, the history of American women remains startlingly invisible at the vast majority of the nation's recognized landmarks... This excellent volume offers no easy solutions, but suggests lines of thought for future scholars, professionals, and preservation advocates.

— Bonnie Stepenoff

CRM: Journal of Heritage Stewardship
If there is one book to have on your shelf about preserving women's history, this is it.

— Vivien Ellen Rose

APT Bulletin: Journal of Preservation Technology
A fascinating survey of not only the history of women in preservation but also ways in which our traditional, male-oriented history can be reinterpreted to be more inclusive... The authors come from both academia and preservation, and they bring a nice mix of approaches from the theoretical to the practical.

— Pamela H. Simpson
