The 2016 Statewide Preservation Conference will take place May 5-7th in Albany and Troy and will mark the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA). This conference will be presented by The Landmark Society of Western New York, Historic Albany Foundation, The Preservation League of New York State and the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. The conference theme for 2016 is Preservation50: NYS.
