Partners in Preservation: Main Streets

Partners in Preservation is an initiative created by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and American Express to engage the public in preserving and increasing awareness of America’s historic places and their role in sustaining local communities. Since its inception in 2006, Partners in Preservation has awarded over $19 million in support of more than 200 sites.

The 2017 Partners in Preservation: Main Streets campaign invites the public to #VoteYourMainStreet to decide which historic sites along 25 of America’s favorite Main Streets should receive $2 million in preservation funding from American Express. 

During this campaign, the public is invited and encouraged to vote once a day for up to five Main Street projects at VoteYourMainStreet.Org. The Main Streets with the most votes at the end of the voting period will be awarded grants, until the full $2 million is distributed.

Main streets continue to matter. Not just to a kid from a small town in...
