People often ask us what we do as preservation advocates...

  • We find productive, economic uses for vacant, old buildings

  • We demonstrate best practices at our historic buildings

  • We offer guidance and support to local groups defending threatened places​

  • We advocate for legislation-including historic tax credits–that revitalizes historic buildings and strengthens the economy


Small amounts accomplish a lot!

A monthly gift of $10, $20 or more makes our work possible - each and every day - and helps give great old places a vibrant future!


Yes! I want to give monthly!
