Dessert is up to you! Whip up your favorite holiday sweet treat and enter it into the dessert competition. We’ll have awards for: (1) The Tastiest (2) The Most Festive and (3) The Most Preservation Nerdy. (We recommend making enough that a few dozen people can sample at least a small bite).

YUP Fb photoIntroducing the Young Urban Preservationists! We are a new group of youngish folks interested in preservation and community revitalization. We come from various walks of life and various professions—lawyers, planners, doctors, veterinarians, architects, writers, artists—but we all have one thing in common: we care about our communities and we believe our historic resources play an important role in any community’s revitalization.

What does “young” mean? Whatever you want it to! We’re targeting those oft-maligned by the media “millennials” (aged 20 to about 40) but, more importantly, we want to connect with like-minded people who are invested in their communities and are young at heart.

Sound like a group of people you would want to hang out with?  We hope so!


We have a bunch of different projects and events in the works. Contact us to learn about how you can get involved in:

  • Homeowner Workshops
  • DIY video tutorials
  • Bikes, Beer & Buildings (bike scavenger hunt that takes place each July)
  • Pop-up event(s) at vacant, at-risk, or under-utilized historic spaces
  • WHERE THE #&@# AM I? historic bar/pub coaster project
  • Volunteer with us at The Landmark Society House & Garden Tour (in June) and Inside Downtown Tour (Sept/Oct)
