What are the Five Principles of Cultural Heritage Tourism?

  1. Focus on Authenticity and Quality.
  2. Preserve and Protect Resources.
  3. Make Sites and Programs Come Alive.
  4. Find the Fit between the Community and Tourism.
  5. Collaborate.

These five principles originated during Hargrove’s tenure with the National Trust for Historic Preservation. They have stood the test of time, and are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.
