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 than 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.


For the latest developments, please visit our Facebook Page.  If you are a Facebook member, please “like” our Wisconsin Association of Historic Preservation Commissions page and invite your friends to do the same.  We would appreciate it!  We will have news on legislation, conference updates, National Park Service actions, and other news of import to Wisconsin’s landmarks and historic preservation commissions and their members.
