Our new look!

Welcome to the new PreserveArkansas.org!
In order to strengthen our identity and differentiate ourselves from other institutions and organizations, we recently refreshed our image. While our official name is still “The Historic Preservation Alliance of Arkansas,” a new logo and a move away from “the Alliance” to “Preserve Arkansas” reflects the active role that we play in preserving the places that matter to Arkansas. Our new tagline, Restore, Redevelop, Revitalize, reflects the ways in which historic preservation impacts Arkansas communities.


More than just saving old buildings, historic preservation offers unique economic and quality of life benefits to Arkansas. Preserve Arkansas works to build stronger communities by reconnecting Arkansans to our heritage and empowering people to save and rehabilitate historic places.
