Pennsylvania Preservation Tax Credit projects

What Happens Now?: Federal Historic Preservation Tax Credit At Risk

The House passed a bill. The Senate passed a bill. The Senate's bill includes a slightly modified version of the historic tax credit, the House bill does not. Your advocacy efforts are still important to encourage your legislator to support preservation of the historic tax credit! The tax credit is an important tool we can't afford to lose! Immediate action is required. Tell your community's tax credit success story. Please encourage others to take action.

guide to historic windowsWhat About the Windows? Help Save Them!

Preservation Pennsylvania is pleased to announce publication of "Considering the Repair, Retrofit, and Replacement of Historic Windows." Useful for HARBS and CLGs, the guide also provides useful information for individual preservationists to advocate for saving historic windows rather than replacing them. 
Help spread the word and be an advocate for original windows!
This project is supported by a grant from the Pennsylvania State Historic Preservation Office via the Certified Local Government program, and is made possible by cooperation of the Boroughs and HARBs of Gettysburg, Bellefonte and Mercersburg.
(Know of a great window restoration/refit expert? Send us the info at -- thanks!)
