Save the Date for the Conference

For the first time ever, the New York Statewide Preservation Conference is headed to Syracuse! Meet us in the Salt City March 26-28 for three days of explorations, conversations, and education. The historic Marriott Syracuse Downtown—vacant since 2004 and re-opened in 2016 using historic tax credits—will be our homebase. From there, we’ll explore preservation efforts throughout downtown Syracuse and its environs.

Coming soon! We’ll have details on the Conference website regarding sessions, speakers, and scholarship opportunities. Registration goes live February 3rd!

Travel Tour: Las Vegas historic preservation & revitalization

Registration deadline approaching fast!

The Nevada Preservation Foundation is our sister organization and is connecting us to some amazing opportunities, including an annual “Mid Mod Mix” tour. This event sells out every year, and they are offering a private tour just for our group. We’ll tour classic mid-century modern neighborhoods, see the areas where Las Vegas became “Vegas” and even get to tour at least one private home.

We’ll spend time in downtown Las Vegas as well, discovering revitalized areas and local history. One of the most intriguing adaptive reuses around is the National Register-listed Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement– better known as The Mob Museum.

One more day to support us in 2019

The Landmark Society of Western New York is our region’s voice for historic preservation. Our programs, like the House & Garden Tour, the New York Statewide Preservation Conference, the Inside Downtown Tour, and our Heritage Travel Tours demonstrate how historic structures ought to be rehabilitated and integrated into our broader built environment. Our Young Urban Preservationists embrace a vision that ensures preservation is a part of the next generation’s community ethos.

Recent projects, such as Rochester’s Park Avenue District’s nomination to the National Register of Historic Places, the historic resources survey for the City of Rochester, helping to save the Huntington Building in Seneca Falls and Parrott Hall in Geneva from demolition, all demonstrate how our historic resources can be integrated into our community fabric.

This is all happening because you identify with our mission and opt to support us financially. Thank you.

We humbly ask for your generous participation in this year’s Annual Fund. Our organization’s annual operating budget relies heavily on donor support – over 40% of our annual budget. I thank you for your loyal support that enables our organization’s meaningful and impactful work.

Sincerely,

Wayne Goodman
Executive Director
