Welcome

Partners in Preservation is a fun, easy way to help keep history alive and beautiful in the DC Metro area. American Express and the National Trust for Historic Preservation have $1 million in preservation grants and they want you to tell them where it should go.

24 historic places from Washington, D.C., Virginia and Maryland are competing to earn points. The historic place that has the most points at the end of the program will be guaranteed to receive a grant. Vote, check in on Foursquare, post a photo on Instagram or Tweet to earn points.
