Now more than ever, we look to our history for courage, comfort, and inspiration. As Kansas City’s community-based preservation organization, Historic Kansas City believes we should continue the tradition of Preservation Month, even in these uncertain times of change. We are committed to carrying forward our mission and celebrating Virtual Preservation Month in May. Since the community can’t come to us, we will be going virtual, offering a variety of online content designed to educate and raise awareness about the important role of historic preservation and advocacy in Kansas City.


Thank you to our Silver Sponsors:



During this unprecedented time, Historic Kansas City is working daily to navigate our new normal like many of you. We’ve received fewer donations than usual during this time of uncertainty and need your help to continue our mission.  To put it simply, we need you.

All funds raised during Preservation Month support our efforts to stay at the forefront of the discussion about Kansas City’s growth and preservation. HKC receives no government funding for our operations, so member dues and contributions are crucial if we are to continue our work protecting Kansas City’s irreplaceable architectural and cultural heritage.  We also believe that now, more than ever, it is extremely important that we stay connected to one another and create the best possible outcomes for the city we love.   We thank you for your support, wish you good health and extend our heartfelt appreciation to all of those who are working tirelessly on the front line.
