Started in 2012, the Power of Preservation Foundation (PoP) is a coalition of advocates, businesses, neighborhoods, and agencies interested in promoting the literal “power” of preservation in our community.

While many citizens, business leaders and elected officials may not self-identify as preservationists, most people value that which preservation is about: a sense of place, a sense of community, reinvestment in downtown and the central city, adaptive reuse of existing buildings and infrastructure, economic development, protection of neighborhoods, authenticity, walkability, and sustainability.

Historic preservation is truly economic, cultural and environmental sustainability! Proceeds raised by PoP support the hands-on preservation programs of the Office of Historic Preservation, including OHP’s S.T.A.R. project (Students Together Achieving Revitalization).

In addition to support of preservation programs, PoP seeks to engage young professionals and students to become the next generation of preservationists. For more information, visit the Power of Preservation Foundation Facebook page.
