The Historic Preservation Caucus, formed in 2003, brings together members of Congress who understand the value of America’s historic places as definers of our national character. Its members support and encourage preservation and thoughtful economic development in their states, districts, and territories as a matter of national policy.

The caucus is Co-Chaired by Representatives Michael Turner (R-OH) and Earl Blumenaur (D-OR).

Investing in the real estate sector has been part of the fabric of America for generations. Preserving communities and incentivizing economic growth builds on that legacy. – Representative Turner (Source)

I’ve seen the power of historic preservation as a key component to a livable community, that is rich and varied. Not just merely the historic character, but the mixed uses, architectural diversity, human scale and function, economic development, jobs and the creation of value.  – Representative Blumenauer (Source)

The growth of the Historic Preservation Caucus is an excellent opportunity for grassroots advocates. These members of Congress have stepped up to say they support us. Let’s work with them locally to share our good work. Cultivate these relationships by inviting them to events and meeting with their district staff.
