Why Preservation Matters?
Threatened historic properties are like endangered species. Once they are gone they are gone forever. As with at-risk plants and animals only we can protect them. It is our responsibility to preserve our material history for future generations.
When you think about it, historic preservation is much more than just old buildings.
