Preservation: Conserving Community in the Face of Change
Historic preservation is a powerful form of civic self-portraiture. Familiar buildings, neighborhoods and landscapes tell a layered story of who we are, and where we came from. Whenever ordinary people take action to safeguard places that matter to them, whole communities enjoy the social, environmental, and economic benefits.
Preservation 4Culture staff work with a volunteer advisory committee and partners in the field to support the work of local preservationists. Through funding programs for critical projects, issues advocacy, and promotion of heritage tourism, we strive to conserve places of meaning in communities throughout King County.
