What is historic preservation? Historic preservation means saving the story of us — the communities we cherish, the parks we love, the buildings we admire, the little stories we always share with visitors. From ancient cultures through the growth of our communities among the sagebrush, it is about saving the places, buildings, artifacts, stories and memories that preserve and enhance our story.
