Saving Places Conference


Colorado Preservation, Inc. held its first historic preservation conference in 1985. The purpose of the conference was to promote the education and networking of individuals interested in historic preservation. The success of the first conference demonstrated a significant interest in gathering preservation professionals on an annual basis. In 1997, the conference format and named changed to “Saving Places” and over the last 18 years, the conference has grown to become the premier preservation event in the Rocky Mountain west, second in size and content only to the National Preservation Conference. preservation50 medium-logo
