MAY 2020

Why Preservation Month

In 2005, the National Trust for Historic Preservation extended their week-long celebration of preservation to the entire month of May and declared it Preservation Month in order to promote historic places and heritage tourism, and that demonstrate the social and economic benefits of historic preservation.

In celebration of National Preservation Month, the Preservation Society embarked on a series of unique, virtual events to educate and raise awareness about the importance of advocacy and historic preservation in Charleston. This year’s program offered something for everyone. Celebrate 100 years of preservation with us by viewing our recorded, virtual programs!
