2018 Pennsylvania At Risk
Now accepting nominations to the Pennsylvania At Risk list.
Each year, the Pennsylvania At Risk list draws statewide attention to the plight of Pennsylvania’s historic resources, promotes and supports local action to protect historic properties, and encourages funding and legislation that supports preservation activities. Preservation Pennsylvania waives field service fees for At Risk properties for the year, and provides additional services and support.
Common threats include development pressure, lack of local tools or regulation, functional obsolescence, financial capacity or weak local economy.

Please be an advocate!
As early as Monday, the Pennsylvania House may move on an effort that would gut conservation and preservation funds. Please reach out to members of the PA House to show them there's a strong constituency that supports conservation and preservation in the state. Be noisy on social media. Tell your friends. Thanks for being a passionate preservationist. Click here to read more in our latest e-news.
What 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 email@example.com -- thanks!)
