"The question today is: Will anyone recognize our South Carolina in 100 years?"

-Governor Henry McMaster (January 11, 2023)

Recycled Paper

In his 2023 inaugural address, Governor McMaster shared his desire to preserve our state's historic fabric. On an annual basis, he hosts and we lead the state's annual Preservation Awards.

In 1990, a group of not so ordinary citizens, wishing to preserve our state's historic buildings, formed Preservation South Carolina. Each of the original 13 colonies has one, statewide non-profit organization that helps preserve historic buildings.


We are South Carolina's statewide organization and we are proud of our first 33 years.

Our Mission

Preservation South Carolina, a non-profit organization operating in South Carolina since 1990, is dedicated to preserving and protecting the historic and irreplaceable architectural heritage of South Carolina.
