Preservation Detroit

Preservation Detroit, founded in 1975, is Detroit's oldest and one of the largest group dedicated to historic preservation. Over the past four decades, the non-profit preservation organization has become a leading advocate for the protection and rehabilitation of Detroit's historic homes, skyscrapers, and culturally rich sites. They have used a variety of educational and research programs, along with advocacy and awareness campaigns to help grow support for the conservation Detroit's built heritage. Part of this mission includes encouraging the redevelopment of neighborhoods throughout the city around these historic structures, providing an anchor for residential areas and helping increase economic investment.

An all-volunteer organization, Preservation Detroit's volunteers and members continue to nurture their community's passion for historical treasures through lectures, seasonal newsletters, and tours. The organization continues to live up to its name; in 2014 they helped conduct a historic preservation resource survey that recorded property-by-property information in six historic Detroit district, and most recently, their advocacy efforts have played a large part in sparing both the State Savings Bank and the Eddystone Hotel from demolition.
