About Preservation Detroit
Preservation Detroit (formerly Preservation Wayne) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to historic preservation within the City of Detroit. Preservation Detroit’s mission is to preserve, promote, and protect the neighborhoods and structures that uniquely define Detroit . As the first Detroit recipient of the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Honor Award, we have been working to honor Detroit’s rich architectural and cultural heritage since 1975. Over the last three decades, the scope of Preservation Detroit has grown to encompass the entire city, from historic homes and skyscrapers to sites of cultural significance. Through education, advocacy, research and awareness, Preservation Detroit seeks to preserve the architectural elements that foster more livable urban environments that emphasize neighborhoods and benefit the people who live in them. Please join us to ensure that Detroit’s history is protected and celebrated for generations to come.
