Preserving Dayton’s Historic Legacies

May is National Historic Preservation Month

Here’s  Your Chance to Support Preservation Initiatives in Dayton!

Preservation Dayton, Inc. has advocated and promoted historic preservation in greater Dayton for nearly 40 years.

Our mission is to promote, protect, and enhance greater Dayton’s architectural heritage, its setting, and its contributions to the region’s quality of life.

We do this by:

  • fostering collaboration among Dayton’s unique and vibrant historic neighborhoods and talented preservation leaders
  • sharing best practices and expertise of the residents  of our historic communities through workshops, urban living expos, networking, and other events
  • advocating for policy and legislative initiatives to support historic preservation and renovation

Please sponsor our upcoming Preservation Awards event to recognize our region’s outstanding preservation leaders. 

Event sponsors will be recognized at the event at the May 25, 2017 event at Requarth Lumber, on the PDI Facebook site, and on the PDI web site.
