The tag historic=building has sometimes been added to a building=* feature to mark it as a non-specific "historic" building. There is no clear definition of what qualifies a particular building as historic.

It is used in addition to building=*, not instead of it.

Consider using a more specific historic=* value instead, for example historic=castle, historic=church, historic=city_gate, historic=farm, historic=fort, historic=manor, historic=monastery or even a new value if needed.
