What is Preservation, and why is it important?
To preserve is to protect, in keeping safe from injury, harm, or destruction. Historic Preservation plays a critical role in helping our historic communities to live on, by maintaining contributing architectural and cultural resources in a way that celebrates our unique history and serves to educate current and future generations. Historic Preservation is a form of civic pride. The Highland Park Heritage Trust is committed to protecting the cultural and architectural heritage of Highland Park and the Arroyo Seco communities.
