For over fifty years, Cincinnati Preservation has been working to save the places that make Cincinnati special. Not just architectural treasures like Music Hall and Union Terminal, but the ordinary neighborhoods that give the city its character. We see preservation as part of a larger mission, to promote vibrant, walkable, sustainable neighborhoods and strengthen the local economy. In addition to working to preserve historic places, we advocate for progressive public policies that reward smart growth, respect our heritage and promote sustainability.
