Until further notice, Preservation Pennsylvania staff will be working remotely, due to COVID-19
We've launched our new website with the goal of doing an even better job of serving you and helping connect people with the resources they need to save the places they love.
Click on the top level pages (Home, Resources, News, Participate, Give/Join or About Us) for a quick overview of that section and easy, clickable reference points. The drop down menu offers a deeper dive into specific interest areas.
The RESOURCES section offers updates on grant and funding opportunities, helpful publications, and PreserveList to helped you find skilled preservation experts (a partnership with Preservation Maryland). Our Link Library will be regularly updated to help you find authoritative guidance on a wide range of topics, from climate change and energy efficiency to historic cemeteries and the neighborhood toolkit from Penn Praxis (you might have heard about at the 2019 conference).
We're really excited about our brand-new NEWS feature, which provides us with the opportunity to present you with regular mini-features about people and places across Pennsylvania, great preservation projects, interesting resources, guest columnists and more! Some of our most recent posts are featured below; just click to read more.
We hope you'll PARTICIPATE -- nominate a place to Pennsylvania At Risk, sign up to learn and network at the Statewide Conference on Heritage, celebrate the amazing recipients of the Pennsylvania Historic Preservation Awards, or attend or sponsor a workshop or a special event we're hosting near you! Attending events is a great way of learning new things, sharing ideas, and making connections.
For more than 35 years, we've advocated on behalf of the commonwealth's historic places. We couldn't have done it without the support of our members and donors. We hope you'll JOIN US or DONATE to help save the places that make Pennsylvania special!
