Coronado Celebrates Preservation Month
Updated: May 16, 2019 - 12:15 pm

Preservation Month is upon us, and it is a month that the Coronado Historical Association proudly celebrates. The scope of this celebration spans far beyond Coronado, though. From local preservation groups, to state historical societies, to businesses and civic organizations across the country, Preservation Month represents an important tradition every year in May.

Throughout the month, many events are planned “that promote historic places and heritage tourism, and that demonstrate the social and economic benefits of historic preservation,” according to the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Thousands of people partake in Preservation Month events annually.

Established by the National Trust in 1973, Preservation Month originated as National Preservation Week. But in 2005, the National Trust extended the celebration to the entire month of May, intending to provide a greater opportunity to celebrate the diverse heritage of cities and states throughout the U.S.
