General Email Newsletter  -  Vol. III   Issue 9


Greetings Preservationists,

We have just returned from a trip around the Western States of the United States, and are excited to share the photos from many cultural and historic places.  The trip began in our home city of Portland, Oregon, and we made stops in Eugene, OR; Grants Pass, OR; Ashland, OR; Yreka, CA; Weed, CA; Sacramento, CA; Las Vegas, NV; and Reno, NV.  Highlights of the trip include Old Town Sacramento in Sacramento, CA and a guided tour of the Neon Museum in Las Vegas, NV.  Photos of Old Town Sacramento can be found in our "Historic Photo Gallery" and we will be adding photos of the Neon Museum (courtesy of the great folks at the Neon Museum!) in the coming weeks.  To view the "Historic Photo Gallery", click here

We were blown away by the amazing collection of neon signs at "the boneyard" area of the Neon Museum, as well as the passion of the dedicated staff.  Over 150 signs have been saved and collected, and guided tours can be arranged by visiting their website at www.neonmuseum.org.  We highly recommend visiting the boneyard the next time you are in Las Vegas. 


In other news:

  • New Historic Real Estate Website Launching in December:
    Snapshot of New Historic Real Estate WebsiteWe are excited to announce that we are putting the final touches on a new online historic real estate resource, and will be launching the new resource in the coming weeks.  The new resource is a separate website that will work closely with PreservationDirectory.com's current historic real estate directory to maximize exposure for these wonderful historic homes.  The new site will focus solely on historic real estate and resources for those selling historic homes and those looking to purchase historic homes.

    The new website will share the database with PreservationDirectory.com, allowing the new site to tap into the vast network established over the last 10 years through PreservationDirectory.com.  The new site features a professional design, easy-to-use interface, 24/7 member area for editing/tracking listings, featured property area, and much more.  We will be able to provide more information about the new service in December!

    Please note - all homes listed on PreservationDirectory.com when the new resource launches will be listed at no additional cost on the new website!  If you would like to take advantage of this additional exposure, be sure to list on PreservationDirectory.com by early December.  To List Historic Properties on PreservationDirectory.com, please click here.

    We are often asked by those that use our resouces how they can support the efforts of PreservationDirectory.com.  There are never any charges to use the many resources available on our website, including the database of historical societies, museums or downtown/mainstreet organizations; event and conference directory; or our collection of articles and press releases related to historic preservation. 

    The site is going strong and we are excited for another great year in 2009, but your support goes a long way towards helping our mission.  Here are a few ways that you can support our efforts - your help is most appreciated!
