Timeless Texts
A great preservation primer, useful for individuals or communities wanting information on the nuts & bolts of preservation -- building support, evaluating the building, and more -- is our guide How to Protect & Preserve the Places that Matter to You. This publication was completed in cooperation with the National Park Service. Visit our How to Protect & Preserve guide page for more information, and to download individual chapters or the entire publication.

The Crisis Handbook: A Guide to Community Action was originally published in 1990 but has remained an important, contemporary guide to managing a preservation crisis. Produced with funds from the Philadelphia Intervention Fund—a Preservation Pennsylvania grant program funded by The Pew Charitable Trusts—this handbook has been widely distributed and was reprinted in its entirety as a National Trust for Historic Preservation Information series publication.  Please feel free to download the handbook for your own use.


Save Our Land, Save Our Towns: A Plan for Pennsylvania, written by Pulitzer-Prize winning author, Tom Hylton, and sponsored by Preservation Pennsylvania, this book vividly explains the relationship between sprawling development and declining cities. It provides attractive alternatives to the car-dependent lifestyle, and it shows how to reverse 50 years of sprawl. Now in its sixth printing, Save Our Land, Save Our Towns has been eagerly read by conservationists, farmers, city dwellers, and others looking for ways America can protect its cities, towns, and countryside. Please click on the title for more information!
