More about PAM

PAM was established in 1981 by a small band of citizens concerned about the loss of Minnesota’s old buildings and the lack of protection for existing ones.

Today, PAM is supported by a growing number of members, donors and sponsors. We work with groups like the State Historic Preservation Office and the National Trust for Historic Preservation to preserve our communities. PAM is a true alliance, so we also align with neighborhood groups to step forward when rare sites or structures are threatened. We partner with businesses large and small for commercial and residential rehab projects. We help our cities, through our partnership in GreenStep Cities, to be more sustainable by reusing old buildings and old neighborhoods. We educate industry professionals about heritage preservation, and we help develop networks among people and organizations to increase awareness of state history and community preservation.
