Celebrate Historic Preservation Month

Celebrate National Historic Preservation Month with the Young Preservationists Association on Friday, May 21, at the Kelly-Strayhorn Theater in East Liberty, starting at 6 p.m.

YPA will release its new list of the "Top Ten Best Preservation Opportunities in the Pittsburgh Area." The list, published annually, highlights historic preservation projects with a good chance of survival and reuse. It's a great way for communities all over southwestern Pennsylvania to celebrate historic preservation victories in the making.

YPA will also be releasing a new, groundbreaking report, "The Economic Impact of Historic Preservation in Southwestern Pennsylvania." The report quantifies how many dollars, jobs, new businesses, and housing units have been created in the last few years through historic preservation.

Finally, YPA will be releasing a new report, "The Top Ten Buildings We Wish We Had Back," which looks back on what we have lost. They serve as lessons for what to preserve in the future.

A fun, networking reception will follow. It's southwestern Pennsylvania's premiere historic preservation month celebration. Don't miss out! Register now at
