Our historic buildings and sites, our landmarks, give context to a shared sense of community.  Here you will find information, advice, and examples that will inspire your community to gain distinction in the conservation and development of its unique cultural resources.

The Wisconsin Association of Historic Preservation Commissions includes landmark and historic preservation commissions, their members and staff, and conservation advocates throughout the State of Wisconsin.  For more that 30 years we have served as their link to local, state, and national resources.

Join with us to best help your citizens appreciate the knowledge, the beauty, and the value contained in your built environment.
