About Us

Our Mission

Preserve Arkansas is the only statewide nonprofit organization focused on building stronger communities by reconnecting Arkansans to our heritage and empowering people to save and rehabilitate historic places. By presenting educational programs, advocating for preservation legislation at the federal, state, and local levels, and assisting property owners with the means and expertise to preserve and restore their structures, Preserve Arkansas has been a statewide voice for preservation since 1981.

Our Vision

We envision Arkansas as a place where people and communities have a strong preservation ethic and a culture of value and respect for historic resources that not only enhance and maintain the state’s unique character, but also increase the economic vitality of the state.

We envision this organization having a strong presence throughout the state and being the trusted resource and leader for preservation matters in Arkansas.
