Statewide Preservation Conference

Education is a cornerstone of Preservation Massachusetts' mission.  By offering opportunities and venues for the preservation community to come together, learn, share, mentor and network, we strengthen ourselves, our initiatives and our collective movement.  Since 2015, the Massachusetts Historic Preservation Conference has been an important biennial program of our organization in partnership with organizations and agencies around the Commonwealth.

2021 Massachusetts Historic Preservation Conference

September 23 - 24

Preservation Massachusetts wants to hear from you! Share your ideas for sessions, tours, and presenters for the virtual Massachusetts Historic Preservation Conference, September 23-24, 2021. This biennial statewide conference is an opportunity to gather all involved with preservation, community, and advocacy to learn, share, mentor, and network.


A virtual conference allows us to reach all communities across the Commonwealth. From urban to rural, coastal to inland, our various regions represent diverse approaches to the preservation of our historic buildings, landscapes, histories, sites and resources. The conference will highlight not only preservation successes, but also challenges and lessons learned.
