Since 1889, Preservation Virginia has served as a statewide historic preservation leader, saving more than 400 historic places. Our six historic sites open to the public serve as catalysts for our efforts to protect and preserve historic places and communities in all regions of Virginia.


Through the generosity of our supporters, we teach, share and collaborate for the preservation and enhancement of Virginia’s communities through our various educational programs.


As an advocate for Virginia’s historic resources, we work closely with decision-makers to communicate the economic and cultural benefits of preservation and promote important preservation-related policies and programs.
