Florida Trust for Historic Preservation

The mission of the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation is to promote the preservation of the architectural, historical and archaeological heritage of Florida through advocacy, education and historic property stewardship.
The Florida Trust for Historic Preservation advocates for legislation and funding in support of historic preservation on behalf of Florida’s many historic sites, museums and parks. We represent Florida’s preservation community through public and media outreach. We empower and support local preservationists by publicizing Florida’s Eleven Most Endangered Historic Sites each year, and through our preservation awards program we recognize exemplary efforts in historic preservation.
We offer extensive education and training opportunities, including local workshops, webinars and an annual conference each year during the month of May. We educate the public on the benefits of historic preservation and provide resources to preservationists, home owners, preservation professionals, and media representatives.
