Places to Save OLD

Places to Save

Our advocacy work focuses attention and energy towards special places at risk of being lost, and is driven by the Preservation Alliance’s advocacy agenda. The sites are featured in each issue of Extant, our triennial magazine. Prior to 2014 the Preservation Alliance maintained an “Endangered Properties List.” “Places to Save” is a rebranding of that list.
