The Landmark Society and Amas Musical Theatre present an Architecture and Theatre Travel Tour of London. London is known for its theatrical scene as well as its iconic architecture, so why not experience both on The Landmark Society’s upcoming travel tour to London, October 28 – November 4, 2016? We are partnering with Amas Musical Theatre in New York City to benefit from their connections with the West End theatre community. Executive Director, Wayne Goodman, and The Landmark Society staff have put together a tour that highlights the architectural icons that London is famous for and a few hidden gems that may be unknown to the average traveler. Registration deadline is August 5, 2016.

Applications are now available for our next round of funding. The Preservation Grant Fund provides initial “start-up” funding to assist in saving historic resources. The grant will not pay for any “bricks and mortar” work. Only pre-construction services are eligible for funding. Specific use of funds is flexible. Examples of eligible projects include: building condition reports, code compliance studies, construction estimates, visual project renderings, measured drawings, cost comparisons.
