Those interested in historic preservation are dedicated to strengthening local communities, yet the challenges presented in today’s world can be a struggle. Historic preservation has never been more important and more vital than it is today. 


By coming together in Baldwin City, we will express the value of preserving Kansas places that tell the stories of our varied communities. By bringing together our experience and diverse perspectives, we can strengthen our efforts to ensure that the character of the places we live, work, and visit will be sustained.
