How Can You Help Preserve Historic Sites?

What Can I Do?

Take the next step to help preserve historic sites:

– Visit www.historicwilmington.org for more information about how you can help save historic buildings using the state and federal preservation tax credits or preservation easements.

– Visit the North Carolina State Historic Preservation Office website for information www.hpo.ncdcr.gov and the website of Preservation North Carolina www.presnc.org

– Call or email Historic Wilmington Foundation with your questions, ideas and suggestions about heritage preservation.

– Attend public hearings to learn more about issues such as affordable housing and preservation zoning.

– Encourage the owners of threatened historic property to carefully evaluate alternatives to demolition.

– Let affordable housing developers know that you prefer the rehabilitation and reuse of older historic houses to demolition.

– Attend a service at St. Peter & St. Paul Church, or any historic church and contribute to their preservation fund.

– Contact Historic Wilmington and donate a preservation easement on your historic building.

– Volunteer to help care for an historic cemetery, or form a friends group for the cemetery.

– Urge government leaders to restore and maintain historic buildings rather than demolish them.
