Take Legal Action

Sometimes, you’ve got to take it to court.

As a last resort, the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation has supported litigation to protect historic properties.  For federal projects, there are 3 laws that may come into play:

In addition, Connecticut has adopted a law, the Connecticut Environmental Protection Act, which protects properties on the National Register from certain actions by private parties and by the State.

For the most part, these laws only apply to properties on or eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.  

Your support helps us protect Connecticut's great places.
