We strive to inform Lancastrians about how historic preservation benefits neighborhood revitalization economic development, heritage tourism and conservation.

What this means is we work with a board base on constituencies to identify and protect historically significant structures in the 60 municipalities that make up Lancaster County. Our work begins with research to identify historic properties. We have thousands documented and in our library.

We strive to enlighten the general public, community leaders and government officials about the importance of preserving historic structures. Municipal ordinances are often our best defense against needless demolition. Timely communications is essential for positive preservation outcomes.
