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 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!
