About Us

The Preserve America program is guided by a steering committee on behalf of White House and is co-chaired by the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) and the Department of the Interior.

Steering committee members include the ACHP, the U.S. Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Education, Housing and Urban Development, Interior, and Transportation; the U.S. General Services Administration; the National Endowment for the Humanities; Institute of Museum and Library Services; the President's Council on Environmental Quality; and the President's Committee on the Arts and the Humanities.

The ACHP has created and maintains this Web site to assist a variety of local, state, federal, and tribal officials plan and execute successful Preserve America events throughout the country.

An independent federal agency, the ACHP promotes the preservation, enhancement, and productive use of our nation's historic resources, and advises the President and Congress on national historic preservation policy. It also provides a forum for influencing federal activities, programs, and policies that affect historic properties.

The 23-member council is served by a professional staff with offices in Washington, D.C. For more information about the ACHP, contact:
