The Historic Preservation Trust uses a variety of methods to encourage and facilitate preservation throughout Lancaster County.


Spreading the Word

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


Teaching Others

We aim to instill an appreciation for Lancaster County’s historic architecture and landscapes. Education is the common thread that runs through our programs.


Creating Partnerships

Our success comes through collaborating with property owners, professionals, academicians, developers, historic preservationists and government officials.


Guarding Our Past

Since being founded in 1966 to save our headquarters building we have saved historic structures countywide through research, education, collaboration and involvement.
