“The PRC preserves New Orleans’ historic architecture, neighborhoods and cultural identity through collaboration, empowerment and service to our community.”

How the PRC fulfills this mission:

  • We advocate for the community and historic neighborhoods and architecture at the local, state and federal levels.
  • We educate citizens and students through a robust Education and Outreach department.
  • We safeguard historic structures with our Preservation Easements program.
  • We improve the quality of life of low-income homeowners through critical home repairs and community revitalization with our Rebuilding Together program.
  • We guide and encourage the acquisition and renovation of vacant buildings by individuals through Operation Comeback and through our practice of accepting and reselling donated structures.
  • We promote awareness through our award-winning publication Preservation in Print, which publishes nine times a year.
  • We save critical pieces of New Orleans’ architecture by acquiring and reselling architectural elements at the PRC Salvage Store.
