Towns with Strong Maritime Heritage on NTHP List

Congratulations to the towns of Lewes, Del., Monterey, Calif., and Waimea, Kaua’i, Hawaii, for their listings on the The National Trust for Historic Preservation's 2006 "Dozen Distinctive Destinations," an annual list of well-preserved historic communities in the United States. The list is meant to promote heritage tourism. Since 2000, NTHP has honored 84 Dozen Distinctive Destinations in 41 states. This year nearly 93 destinations in 39 states were nominated by individuals, preservation organizations, and local communities. (Full disclosure: Maritime Heritage Network and the MHN Blog are partly funded with an NTHP grant.)
