To celebrate the launch of our new companion group page on Facebook, we are happy to have added hundreds of photos from our personal achives to the new group page. The photos are some of our favorites shots of buildings, roadside attractions, and other cultural sites from our travels across North America.
Part of the goal of PreservationDirectory.com is to inspire our readers to visit and celebrate our wonderful architectural and cultural resources. We are happy to include some of our favorite historic places, including our home city of Portland, Oregon; Seattle, WA; San Francisco, CA; Washington, DC; The Big Island of Hawaii; Syracuse University in Syracuse, NY (our alma mater); Spokane, WA; Chicago, IL; Savannah, GA; Salt Lake City, UT; as well as photos of roadside Americana, neon, signage and murals.
Collaboration is also a big part of PreservationDirectory.com - in that spirit, we are looking for photos from the public to add to the architectural photo gallery. To submit photos, joing the Facebook historic preservation group at www.facebook.com/preservationdirectory.
In addition to regular updates to the architectural photo gallery, look for job postings in the fields of historic preservation, cultural resources and architecture, and policy alerts with links to new and archived documents.
