Historic preservation is the leading force of community revitalization and has an impact on how the people of Kentucky live in and how visitors view our state. Throughout Kentucky, historic buildings, neighborhoods, landscapes and prehistoric sites contribute to the unique personality and distinctive characteristics that identify and distinguish our great state.
Every week, people across the state contact Preservation Kentucky asking for help with a special place in their community. As the statewide advocate for historic places, Preservation Kentucky places a critical role in getting people the help they need to keep their special places in Kentucky’s future.
Your support helps make sure that Preservation Kentucky is available to consult with homeowners, meet with and advise community preservation groups, evaluate threats to historic buildings, and offer expert testimony at town council meetings, zoning boards and legislative hearings.
And improve Kentucky’s economy:
When people care and understand the importance of saving places, good things happen: communities are revitalized and history is enjoyed. Our delightful Main Streets, exciting downtowns, vibrant neighborhoods and picturesque rural landscapes are important to Kentucky and our economic vitality because they tell our story and attract visitors from all over the world.
With the privilege of enjoying this legacy of treasures comes the responsibility to protect them. If it weren’t for people such as you, Kentucky would not have many of its beautiful, nationally acclaimed historic sites, archaeological sites and historic landscapes that make the place we call Kentucky very special.
We hope you will partner with us to keep Kentucky historic, appealing and enduring.
