May is National Historic Preservation Month


May is National Preservation Month. The National Trust for Historic Preservation has played a major role in leading past efforts, and until recently they would issue a theme for each year. Now, the Trust is encouraging everyone to celebrate Preservation Month through the “This Place Matters” campaign. More information can be found by visiting .
