Sustainability Begins with Historic Preservation
Preserving and taking care of what we have literally begins at home.
This website-with a special emphasis on Virginia and the mid-Atlantic region-provides the homeowner the tools he or she needs to:
eatherize a historic house in a way that is sensitive to its inherent
"green" qualities and older materials;
renovate a historic home while saving money on energy costs; and,
apply for Federal and Virginia (state) rehabilitation tax credits.
Sustainability and preservation also extend to our neighborhoods and surrounding communities.
This website also provides information and tools for those interested in:
empowering themselves and others to preserve the built
environment for future generations, and
learning about the inherently "green" aspects of historic preservation
as a sustainable environmental practice
