May is Historic Preservation Month! Celebrate with Us!

Since the National Trust for Historic Preservation created Preservation Week in 1971 to spotlight local preservation efforts in America, the celebration has grown. Preservation Month is observed by small towns and big cities with events ranging from architectural and historic tours and award ceremonies, to fundraising events, educational programs, and heritage travel opportunities. Celebrations take place all over the country during May. For information on what is happening from the West Coast to the East Coast, check out these stories:
