May Is Historic Preservation Month

May 1, 2008

May is the fourth annual National Preservation Month. This year’s theme is This Place Matters.

Throughout May, the National Trust and its thousands of partners across the country will demonstrate the importance of our nation’s heritage as they focus on many aspects of the preservation movement including historic travel, heritage education, historic homeownership, and community revitalization. Local celebrations will highlight the unique culture and traditions of different areas of the country, and the National Trust strongly encourages people to participate in National Preservation Month events being held in their communities.

In honor of National Preservation Month, I’ve included links from The National Trust For Historic Preservation‘s 11 Most Endangered Places and from my home state of Indiana, The Historic Landmarks Foundation of Indiana: 10 Most endangered in Indiana. Go visit or volunteer at an historic site or home this month, save our irreplaceable heritage.
