The mission of the Historic Preservation Trust of Lancaster County is to educate and advocate for the preservation of historic sites and properties whose integrity of design, settings, materials, and workmanship contribute to the character of Lancaster County.

Vision Statement

The Trust is a nonprofit membership corporation serving Lancaster County Pennsylvania. The Trust has led efforts to preserve Lancaster County’s historic sites and architecture and will continue this role by collaborating with individuals, businesses, municipalities, government agencies, and other not-for-profit organizations, and by delivering preservation education and advocating for preservation of historic architecture and sites. The Trust will support this activity by growing revenue through membership, events and grants. Costs of operations are minimized and delivery of services continues to depend on volun- teers. The Trust will endeavor to use as much revenue as possible to deliver services including, but not limited to, collaboration, education, and advocacy.
