Although the first thing that may come to mind is preserving a landmark building, it’s much more that that!
Historic preservation is also championing historic places, telling their stories, and promoting an historic and authentic sense of place. It can also mean preserving the memories of people, places, and events that have shaped our history and culture.
All of these things enhance our sense of community and stimulate the local economy. If you’ve ever toured one of Apalachicola’s historic homes or museums, shopped in our local stores, admired our city’s architecture, attended or volunteered at a community event, or visited an historic marker, then you’ve been a part of preservation efforts.
