History is like Frankenstein's monster; all it takes to make it come alive is the right education, a large body of artifacts exhumed from the earth, and an electrical storm. Learn from the past with today's Groupon to the Preservation Resource Center. Choose between the following options:

The nonprofit Preservation Resource Center safeguards New Orleans’ cultural and architectural heritage with programs that range from legislative advocacy and homeowner assistance to the restoration of neglected buildings. Individual memberships immerse citizens in the vibrant history of their locale as smoothly as Ben Franklin's hot tub and furnish them with invitations to annual meetings and specially discounted events. Defenders of yesteryear also gain access to the society's library facilities, which are located in a 19th century iron foundry with a stately Gothic Revival façade. Wander through the quaint cobblestone alleys of architectural insight as you immerse yourself in the Preservation in Print publication, a nine-times-yearly newsletter for members.
Committed preservationists stymie Father Time from the ranks of the Heritage Club, which entitles up to four persons to the perks of membership. Heritage Club patrons receive praise for their support in an issue of Preservation in Print and can attend a special reception with their spouse or favorite Frank Lloyd Wright action figure. Since its founding in 1974, the Preservation Resource Center has helped to renovate 1,200 homes and educate residents about the city’s architectural legacy and underground minotaur arenas.
