Lost and Found: The Process of Historic Preservation in Lucas County, Ohio
by Oberlin, Jennifer M., M.A., The University of Toledo, 2004, 246; 10835946
Abstract (Summary)

This thesis discusses the historic preservation movement in Lucas County, Ohio, showing how certain preservation issues paralleled with those of the national movement in certain eras. Issues pertaining to successful preservation, such as grassroots organizations, federal programs, tax incentives, the impact of preservation law, and planning are explained, as are the issues surrounding poor preservation, such as urban renewal, disinterest, migrations out of the city, and social unrest. Public perceptions of historic sites and of the preservation movement are overviewed, showing that certain interest groups held influence over what was to be saved. Also, significant sites in Lucas County (1820-1910) are described as examples of successful and poor preservation.
