RECEPIENTS OF THE 2022 HISTORIC PRESERVATION AWARDS
Our non-profit organization receives no direct funding from either the state or federal government to sustain our operations. Memberships and donations are therefore critical to our ability to save South Carolina's historic structures. Please become a member or donate to this important cause.
