Preservation Assistance Online

Did you know that the Preservation and Advocacy section of the Landmark Society website has tons of great information for anyone interested in historic preservation?

Our “Preservation News” section includes information on current preservation issues, such as our position statement on the redevelopment of the Midtown site. Scroll down to find our “How to” section – this is where we collect the best resources we can find regarding building maintenance and repair (including the full text and illustrations of our highly regarded publication “Rehab Rochester,” an old-house-owner’s manual full of great advice), the nuts and bolts of landmark designation and historical research, and the all-important preservation funding section, where you’ll find information on grants and other sources of funding for rehabilitation projects.

We are always working to improve this section of the website, so if there’s something you’d like to see here, let us know!
