Preservation Month California!

4-image collageMay is Preservation Month in California and across the nation! The California Office of Historic Preservation invites all California communities and preservation enthusiasts to make the month of May an opportunity for discovering/re-discovering, honoring, and sharing the unique heritage of your local region. Visit a historic site, sponsor or attend a cultural event, nominate a historically significant property to the National Register of Historic Places, and more. Historic preservation is not only about preserving buildings and sites, but also the stories and traditions connected to those places. Preservation is about telling the full story of who we are!
