Partners for Sacred Places
Historic York, Inc. in partnership with the York County Council of Churches initiated a program where local churches look funding opportunities to preserve their historic places of worship.
Historic York, Inc. will continue our advisory roles on the Lancaster-York Heritage Region, YorkScape Beautification Committee, and the York Heritage Committee. We have also been invited to participate in the newly formed Growth Management Task Force that will help update the county’s comprehensive plan. We expect preservation to play an increasingly important role.
Historic York, Inc. strives to educate our community on the important and active role historic buildings play in our economy. Through our Annual Historic House Tour, Annual Preservation Awards Program, educational workshops and lecture series, we show that any building can be reused in the twentieth-first century
Our historic walking tours of downtown York can be catered to whatever resources you want to see and whatever time you have available. Please call to set up an appointment.
