This Note discusses historic preservation law in the context of the rede-velopment fight over the Washington, D.C. neighborhood, Barry Farm. The Note argues that historic preservation law is inadequately structured to protect and preserve properties associated with poor and nonwhite communities. The Note closely examines the efforts of Barry Farm tenants to have their homes historically designated, and it shows how current law placed unnecessary barriers in their path. As a remedy, the Note recommends removing physicality requirements from historic preservation laws.
