cultural landscape is defined as a geographic area (including both cultural and natural resources), that is associated with a historic event, activity or person, or exhibiting any other cultural or aesthetic values.
The four general types are historical sites, historical designed landscapes, historic vernacular landscapes, and ethnographic landscapes.
“Cultural landscapes can range from thousands of acres of rural land to homesteads with small front yards.
They can be man-made expressions of visual and spatial relationships that include grand estates, farmlands, public gardens and parks, college campuses, cemeteries, scenic highways, and industrial sites. Cultural landscapes are works of art, texts and narratives of cultures, and expressions of regional identity. They also exist in relationship to their ecological contexts.”
