Preservation is the magazine for people who love historic places. Each issue spotlights sites that have shaped the American identity, and the people working tirelessly to protect them. Thought-provoking narratives and brilliant photography celebrate historic places of all kinds—from houses, train depots, and theaters to battlefields, national parks, heritage travel destinations, and sacred sites.
As the quarterly publication and voice of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the magazine inspires readers to save the past and enrich the future through NTHP membership, charitable giving, advocacy, and volunteerism.

Editorial: The magazine does not accept unsolicited manuscripts, although the editors do review query letters from established writers if accompanied by several previously published clips. Unsolicited photographs must be accompanied by a self-addressed, stamped envelope; however, the magazine assumes no responsibility for such photographs. Please do not send unsolicited slides.
The magazine's launching point is architecture, but it is also, as the judges of the National Magazine Award write, about "politics, art, history, places, and people … Preservation tells the stories of extraordinary buildings and sites all over the world."
