Preservation Magazine—Contact Us

Preservation is the magazine for people who love historic places. Each issue spotlights sites that have shaped the American identity, and the people working tirelessly to protect them. Thought-provoking narratives and brilliant photography celebrate historic places of all kinds -- from houses, train depots, and theaters to battlefields, national parks, heritage travel destinations, and sacred sites.

As the quarterly publication and voice of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the magazine inspires readers to save the past and enrich the future through NTHP membership, charitable giving, advocacy, and volunteerism.
