WELCOME TO PRESERVATION KENTUCKY
Sustaining Kentucky’s heritage through advocacy and education
Historic preservation is an economic driver and development tool that contributes significantly to local, regional and state revenue; quality of life; neighborhood and downtown revitalization; job creation; workforce security; tourism; and, recreational, arts and cultural activities.
Preservation Kentucky is a statewide membership-based 501(c)(3) public charity nonprofit that advocates the sustainability of our historic buildings, rural landscapes and prehistoric sites. Our mission is to make Kentucky communities stronger, healthier and economically sustainable. Our goals are to advocate the economic benefits of historic preservation for revitalization, heritage tourism, community stabilization and jobs; and, to connect Kentuckians with their history by helping them appreciate, maintain and protect their heritage.
“Heaven must be a Kentucky kind of place.”
Daniel Boone, American Pioneer, Explorer, Frontiersman and Folk Hero
