Who We Are

Our Mission More

The National Trust for Historic Preservation, a privately funded nonprofit organization, works to save America’s historic places. We are the cause that inspires Americans to save the places where history happened. The cause that connects us to our diverse pasts, weaving a multi-cultural nation together. The cause that transforms communities from places where we live into places that we love. As the leading voice for preservation, we are the cause for people saving places.

Our History More

Chartered by Congress in 1949, today's National Trust has become the organization its founders envisioned: the vigorous leader of an expansive movement that is changing the face of America.
