Conservation of cultural heritage is very important for all countries in the world as it provides identification and continuity for the next generations. However, the degree of interesting differentiates from country to country. While developed countries have come a long way in this field, developing countries are still struggling to catch up with them. The objective of this paper is to investigate and analyze the transformation of conservation of the cultural heritage in United States of America, in addition to find out the key issues influencing the conservation process. The researcher selected United States of America after reviewing different conservation movements in several countries. US has established an advanced and mature conservation process, has wide experience in the field of heritage conservation, and possess various examples in conserving the cultural heritage. The researcher followed the Contextual analysis method to generate the Immediate Inferences and come up with the findings. The evolutionary study of US provides a broader and deeply understanding of the conservation mechanism which will reflect appropriately on the development of the cultural heritage in the other countries.
