Preserving Our Historic Architecture and Diverse Culture
Using evidence-based advocacy, PRC fights to preserve the places and people that make New Orleans special.
PRC educates today’s preservationists with historic architecture tours, hands-on classes and educational workshops.
The PRC facilitates renovations of historic properties, ensuring these buildings are treated with the best practices in historic preservation. The PRC’s Revival Grants program provides free home repairs to low- to moderate-income homeowners and works to preserve the historic architecture and culture of our city’s oldest neighborhoods.
Preservation easements are one of the most powerful tools available, and PRC’s easement portfolio protects 140 historic buildings in the New Orleans area.
