Preservation Month California!
May is Preservation Month, not just in California, but across the nation. The California Office of Historic Preservation (OHP) 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 festival or event, nominate a historically significant property to the National Register of Historic Places, create a family history book. Historic preservation is not only about preserving buildings and sites, but also the stories and traditions connected to those places. Preserve the history, and tell the full story of who we are!
