Celebrate Preservation Month!

May 1 - May 31, 2018

May 1 through May 31

Select communities and historic sites in Missouri. See the schedule to the right. 


Join the Road Show and celebrate the preservation of Missouri's historic places! From buildings and battlefields to Main Street and mansions, Missouri's historic treasures tell the story of our diverse heritage. 

We’re partnering with the Missouri State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) to Celebrate Preservation Month in Missouri during May 2018. We are excited to highlight four Missouri historic sites and nine Missouri Main Street Communities who are working diligently to preserve their historic resources.

Through this project, we hope to encourage Missouri citizens of all ages to learn more about the history surrounding them, discover new sites and communities, and understand the importance of preserving our history and historic places for generations to come.

We invite all Missourians to visit these sites and communities in a celebration of our heritage and preservation efforts. See the calendar of events and join the Celebrate Preservation Month roadshow at stops near you!

Help us spread the word on social media about preservation in Missouri and share pictures of the places that matter to you. Be sure to use the #MoPlacesMatter hashtag in your posts.
