We are thrilled to announce that the newest feature on PreservationDirectory.com - the "Preservation Blog" - has officially launched.  The Preservation Blog serves as a collection of "mini-blogs" that present articles and news items in a wide variety of topics under the umbrella of historic and cultural resource preservation.  Our aim is to build a public repository of articles/notices/press releases on a wide variety of topics of value to the preservation community, including restoration techniques, the historic nomination process, museum exhibitions and news, preservation legislation, historic travel and heritage trip ideas, and endangered or threatened historic sites and homes.

Over time and in reaction to user feedback, we plan on adding additional categories in the future.  The initial list of blog categories is:

  1. Architecture & Design: Issues in architecture and design, from new projects, discussion of master architects, and related news.
  2. Historic Preservation & Restoration Projects: Sharing information about preservation-related projects, techniques in the restoration and revitalization of historic homes, buildings and related structures and case studies of restoration projects.
  3. Educational Programs in Preservation: Information about undergraduate and graduate programs in historic preservation and cultural resource preservation, upcoming classes in preservation and cultural resource, and information on educational seminars and workshops.
  4. Employment Opportunities in Preservation: Employment opportunities available in historic preservation, building restoration, museum employment, architecture, urban planning, and other related fields. Full-time positions, internships, contract employment and other opportunities in preservation-related fields.
  5. Endangered History: Spread the word about a historic site or structure in your area that is endangered, as well as learn about the efforts of preservation organizations to save endangered places and threatened cultural resources. Including information and links to local/State/National programs dedicated to the preservation and restoration of endangered sites and structures.
     
  6. Funding, Tax Incentives and Grants for Preservation Projects: Information on funding and grants for preservation projects, available programs and tax incentives. This is one of the topics that our users request information about most frequently, and our hope is that organizations will use our site to distribute information outlining existing programs and tax incentives that are available. 
  7. Heritage Travel and Tourism: Trip information for historic and scenic places from all over the world. Articles about heritage travel, historic lodging and accommodations, and great trips you can take to see history all over the world.
  8. Legislation & Public Policy Issues in Preservation: Detailing past, current and future legislation in historic preservation and cultural resource preservation, as well as highlight past/current/future policy issues in preservation at the local, state and national levels.
  9. Museums & Cultural Resources: Outlining current and upcoming exhibitions, museum news, and information about history and cultural resource museums. Information on history museums, historic house museums, and cultural sites and places.
  10. National Park Service News: Regular updates on National Park Service news, issues faced by parks and sites managed by the National Park Service, trip and travel ideas, and other insights into the management of our national parks.
  11. Theater, Cinema & Opera House Restoration and Revitalization: Information about the restoration and revitalization of historic theaters, movie theaters, opera houses, historic performing arts centers, etc. Also, resources available for historic theater lovers and researchers.
  12. What's New on PreservationDirectory.com? We will post regular updates detailing recent additions to PreservationDirectory.com.

In addition to the categories listed above, we are currently preparing articles on the following topics and will be adding the following categories in the coming weeks and months:

  • Researching the History of Your House
  • Downtown & Mainstreet Revitalization
  • Urban Planning
  • If you would like to submit articles in these categories, please email us at info@preservationdirectory.com.

This section of our website will grow and change over time, and we look forward to your feedback as you read (and hopefully contribute) to our article and press release archive.  Each month we will include a snapshot of recently added articles, new categories created, and other news related to the blog through our email newsletter. 

If you have ideas for an article/news item, have suggestions for additional categories, or would like more information about the Preservation Blog, please don't hesitate to contact us.  We look forward to continuing to serve the preservation community!
