  Recent News

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 ssmith@preservationpa.org -- thanks!)

With great sadness, we share news of the passing of Louis J. Appell, Jr., He was a founding member of Preservation Pennsylvania, a generous and longtime supporter of our organization, and chairman of our Board of Advisors. He's pictured here (at left) with fellow F. Otto Haas Award recipients Caroline Boyce, Janet Klein and Tom Hylton at the Preservation Pennsylvania Awards in 2012. His wisdom and encouragement will be missed.
 
Read more about Mr. Appell's legacy in Central Pennsylvania and York County in this article from the York Daily Record.

Making the case for preservation

If you've ever wished you had something to give the Powers that Be to convince them about the value of historic preservation, perhaps the article, "Planning for Preservation: What it means for your borough" by Preservation Pennsylvania's own Erin Hammerstedt will help! Erin offers a list of ways preservation can contribute to downtown revitalization. This article originally appeared in the February 2016 Borough News Magazine, a publication of the Pennsylvania State Association of Boroughs.
