PAM’s New Preservation Resources Tab Is Here!

We’re pleased to announce that we have spent the last 6 months overhauling and updating our Preservation Resources tab in order to provide a better user experience for local preservationists across the state. We’ve been working as an organization to make sure that we are doing all we can to help save Minnesota’s historic resources. This has required a number of changes to the way that we do things; you may have heard that we have transitioned from the 10 Most Endangered Historic Places list to our Sites Worth Saving program. We believe that through the Sites Worth Saving program and our new Preservation Resources tab we will be able to better engage with local advocates and hopefully save more places.

If you’ve never visited our Preservation Resources tab before it looked a little something like this:

Our goal has always been to provide as much information as possible to those interested in learning more about how to save a place they care about. We found over time that the format that we provided all this information in was not always easy to find what one was looking for. Through a Legacy Grant as part of the Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund, we were able to take a more comprehensive look at the way we conveyed information and how we might do so in a better way.

We’ve reorganized things to into three main headers: General Preservation Information; Communities and Active Groups; and Details, Details, Details. Each of these areas has unique information that we hope will be helpful to local advocates interested in preserving historic resources.

Thanks to the Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund, Diana Dyste, as well as Mark and Kathy from Windmill Design for their commitment to put together this exciting project.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page on Tuesday’s as we provide links to some of the unique resources that we have available on our website. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact me at wokeefe@mnpreservation.org. We hope that you find this to be an effective tool as you endeavor to save Minnesota’s historic properties.
