Each year, May is Historic Preservation Month!
America’s historic sites are irreplaceable. From icons of architecture to birthplaces of activists, historic sites are physical reminders of the diversity of our experiences and the history we share. They can celebrate our triumphs. Or challenge us to confront the harsh realities of our past.
But America’s historic places can’t be replaced once they are destroyed. That’s why the National Trust for Historic Preservation works every day to save them. With the support of people like you, the National Trust takes direct action in the courts and in Congress to save threatened places. We provide millions in grant funding to restore them. And we empower Americans to campaign for threatened historic sites in their own communities.
The story of places is the story of all of us. With your help, the National Trust can connect Americans to their past and to each other—and help inspire a better tomorrow.
