PRESERVATION ADVOCACY GROUPS IN FLORIDA

by | Preservation groups | 0 comments

There are many historic preservation groups in Florida fighting to save their built cultural environment. For decades, the state has been famous for its shady land grabs. Now that there’s less land to grab, in their reckless enthusiasm, developers target old neighborhoods, bifurcating & polluting them with highways paid for by our tax dollars. They destroy their homes & vintage commercial buildings to erect chain stores & restaurants, or purchase them as rentals & allow them to rot.

Fortunately, the preservation advocacy groups in Florida provide the old buildings with a voice & some of their words are being heard. Add yours. Some of the most wonderful friendships I ever had were made participating in these groups.

Florida-Trust-for Historic-PreservationFlorida Trust for Historic Preservation
As the leading preservation advocacy group in Florida, the Trust promotes the preservation of the architectural, historical & archaeological heritage of the state, focusing on four areas: Advocacy, Education and Stewardship.
As advocates, they collaborate with other non-profits & government agencies at all levels to influence policy decisions & encourage funding that protect Florida’s history & heritage.
As educators, they promote heritage tours, participate in Main Street events & host a variety of workshops to teach best preservation practices.

As stewards, they have restored the Hays-Hood House, a Queen Anne Victorian in the Magnolia Heights National Register District in Tallahassee for use as their headquarters.
