Preservation Partners

Preservation Virginia works hand-in-hand with and relies upon the expertise of like-minded organizations and groups across the state in order to ensure that Virginia is recognized regionally, nationally and internationally for preserving and promoting its distinctive historic structures, landscapes, collections, communities and archaeological sites. In an effort to link and strengthen local preservation efforts across the Commonwealth, Preservation Virginia is assembling an ever-growing Preservation Partners resource. From historical societies and preservation organizations, to community-based action groups and local governmental entities, this resource aims to help foster connections and build coalitions to strategically and effectively advocate for Virginia’s historic resources. 

If your group is not listed, please contact Lisa Bergstrom at lbergstrom@preservationvirginia.org with the organization's name, address and a website to be included on the map.
