Young Urban Preservationists 1

Introducing the Young Urban Preservationists! We are a group of young-ish folks interested in preservation and community revitalization. We come from various walks of life and various professions, but we all have one thing in common: we care about our Rochester-area communities and we believe our historic resources have an important role to play in making our communities dynamic and distinctive.

Sound like you? GET INVOLVED with our events:

  • Bikes, Beer & Buildings
    – a historic bike scavenger hunt taking place each summer
  • Heart Bombing, Park(ing) Day, and other pop-up events spotlighting vacant, at-risk, or under-utilized historic spaces
  • Volunteering with us at The Landmark Society June House & Garden Tour and October Inside Downtown Tour 

The YUPs are also a member of the Rust Belt Coalition of Young Preservationists and travel to “takeovers” hosted by other young preservationists organizations in resurgent cities across the Rust Belt in order to share & celebrate preservation’s role in community revitalization.
