Without preservation efforts, entire generations would never know the beauty of Jefferson’s Monticello, the reverence of Washington’s Mount Vernon, or the sanctity of the bar where Andrew Jackson once challenged a horse to a duel. Help save our nation’s most iconic establishments with today's Groupon to the DC Preservation League. Choose between two annual membership options:
- For $25, you get one individual membership (a $50 value).
- For $37, you get one dual/family membership (a $75 value).
Tapping into twin senses of civic responsibility and respect for heritage, the DC Preservation League's architectural defenders help citizen activists conserve Washington's most laudable landmarks. Members can step into American history books without worrying about period costume or attacks from librarians, with exclusive access to historic buildings, free members-only events, and discounts on league tours and lectures. Aside from assisting in the defense of DC's historic haunts—ranging from Georgetown's Old Stone House to Anacostia's Cedar Hill––the Preservation League's structural stewards also compile an annual list of Washington's most endangered places, popularizing the plight of landmarks beset by crumbling foundations or brick-stealing giraffes.
When not girding great buildings against the oncoming rush of time, DC Preservation League members cut rugs at a variety of annual balls and parties. In addition to admission to the league's annual cocktail reception in September, DC Preservation League members also receive $10 off of the league's 40th Anniversary Gala, held on April 21, 2011, amid the breathtaking architecture and grape-jelly topiaries of the historic Wonder Bread Factory.
Students and senior citizens should not purchase the individual membership because they already receive discounted membership rates.
