Historic places create connections to our heritage that help us understand our past, appreciate our triumphs, and learn from our mistakes. Historic places help define and distinguish our communities by building a strong sense of identity. To ensure that their stories remain a part of our lives today, the National Trust for Historic Preservation protects and promotes historic places, including a diverse collection of 27 sites open to the public. When you visit a historic site, you learn from their stories and help keep history alive.
From the homes of icons such as Nina Simone and Pauli Murray, to Green Book sites like the A.G. Gaston Motel, join us in protecting and restoring places where significant African American history happened.Take the Pledge
