Historic Preservation

The Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia is a nonprofit, membership organization whose mission is to promote the appreciation, protection and revitalization of the Philadelphia region’s historic buildings, communities and landscapes. The site was created as a repository for all things ‘historic preservation’ related in Philadelphia – Protect, Explore, Restore & Participate!

The Philadelphia Historical Commission identifies and designates historic resources, listing them on the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places, an inventory that currently includes more than 22,000 properties and 15 historic districts.
