HUB graphic rev April 15 2014We envision a thriving Hartford whose future prosperity builds on our rich heritage through our historically significant architecture, sites and neighborhoods.

Buildings with distinctive architecture define our downtown and the neighborhood character of Hartford. But in recent years demolition has become the common response to problems of blight and neighborhood revitalization.

Preserving Hartford’s historic architecture maintains ties to our heritage and is a key element to the revitalization of our city.

Hundreds of buildings have been demolished over the last few years, many of which were part of the essential fabric of the neighborhoods that grew in Hartford from the 1880s through the 1920s. Many more buildings are in danger of being leveled.

HPA views these historic buildings as community assets that can play an important role in creating value and stabilizing neighborhoods in the city. The Hartford Preservation Alliance is seeking to save these buildings and strengthen those neighborhoods before it is too late.

The Hartford Preservation Alliance is a professionally-operated, volunteer-assisted 501(c)(3) organization that relies upon its membership to support its programs, activities and services. Learn more about becoming a member. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation, please click here.
