Welcome to The Connection

Welcome to The Connection, a blog of the Alabama Trust for Historic Preservation. We’re connecting people and preservation to save historic places, and we believe this virtual space is central to that mission. By sharing stories, lending support, and highlighting resources around our great state and beyond, we’ll discover new tools and techniques for saving the places that matter most to us all.

We want to be a central place Alabamians can turn to for resources concerning their historic properties, from research tools to hands-on preservation tips and tricks, including no-nonsense information on tax credits and incentives for preservation, and advice about when to hire a professional. We want to highlight the grassroots groups and organizations across our state that are already doing the amazing work of preserving and interpreting our collective past, and we want to leave space to showcase our project partners and hands-on preservation workshops.

May is National Preservation Month, and as such, we’re excited to bring you content from some of the leading professionals in our field. Look out for more content coming soon, and Happy Preservation Month!
