Preservation Statement


Preserving important structures, landscapes and other aspects of the built environment is a key tenet of the Society's mission. One way the Society has taken a leadership role is by developing guidelines for architects and historians who have been asked to testify about the significance of a building or landscape.

SAH Guidelines for Architectural Historians Testifying on the Historic Significance of Properties

As a matter of policy, the Society only becomes involved in preservation issues of national or international significance. Preservation issues of local significance should be directed to your State Historic Preservation Office or to local preservation organizations.
