Old but not forgotten 

Preserving our region's historic churches, homes, and barns

Old homes tucked into city neighborhoods; big, stoic dairy barns reminding us of an earlier time; massive cathedrals on modern urban streets --- the buildings left us by earlier generations contribute character and elegance to the Greater Rochester's landscape.

But these places offer more than just quaint history; they are resources that can be used to generate jobs, tourism, affordable housing, and downtown investment. The Preservation League of New York State reports, "$1 million spent rehabilitating an historic building in New York State ultimately adds $1.9 million to the state's economy."

So it's not just a question of beauty, it's a question of value. Waste not, want not: Let's use what we have.
