Case Study: African American Cemetery Stewardship Program

The African American Cemetery Stewardship Program is a collaboration by Pennsylvania Hallowed Grounds (PAHG) and Preservation Pennsylvania to ensure the protection and preservation of African American cemeteries and burial grounds across Pennsylvania. This grant-funded program was created to directly address and reduce the structural barriers faced by the cemetery group volunteers. Read about what was accomplished.

Preservation Pennsylvania helps you find the information and resources you need to pursue preservation in your community.

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, and helpful publications. 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.

Use our NEWS  feature for updates and 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 scroll and click to read more.

We hope you'll PARTICIPATE -- nominate a place to Pennsylvania At Risk, 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 40 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! (Some people confuse us with the Pennsylvania State Historic Preservation Office. We collaborate, but we are a private nonprofit that counts on members and donors to support the statewide preservation work we do!)
