Basic Information

Preservation South Carolina was formed in 1990, and is dedicated to preserving and protecting South Carolina's historic buildings and places, advocating for their productive use, and promoting the state's diverse cultural legacy. 

As South Carolina’s only statewide nonprofit preservation organization, Preservation South Carolina works for:

  • The advocacy of historic preservation, with an active voice raised to state government leaders on behalf of preservation legislation, and in community efforts to save historic properties.

  • The education about our state’s history and culture, by talking with individuals and groups in South Carolina communities that harbor historic properties in need of preserving.

  • The funding of historic preservation efforts, by providing assistance to communities, organizations and individuals that are dedicated to preserving our state’s rich and diverse past.

  • The preservation of properties, with real input in acquiring, stabilizing, and reselling historic buildings for proper rehabilitation and reuse.

  • The networking of passionate and talented preservationists who can work together to professionally preserve our state.



Each year thousands of South Carolinians work to preserve the state’s legacy that is reflected in our historic buildings, structures, and sites.
