Abstract

From the perspective of local residents, who are the ultimate stakeholders and guardians of heritage preservation, this paper aims to explore the public perceptions and internal and external factors that can influence residents’ preferences for historic preservation criteria. The results of multiple regression analyses reveal that the three preservation criteria (physicality, human relationship, and actions and processes) are influenced by residents’ subjective perceptions and objective characteristics. Some management implications, including designing comprehensive interpretation systems to enhance cultural capital, are discussed.
