38th Annual Holiday Home Tour

Now that Preservation Resource Center is approaching its 40th birthday, it’s safe to say we have fully grown into our role of preserving, restoring and revitalizing New Orleans’ historic architecture and neighborhoods.  

PRC works tirelessly to sustain New Orleans’ character and sense of community, not only assisting the city’s many historic buildings, but also coming to the aid of the many generations of people who live in them.  Here’s a snapshot of PRC’s regular activities:
• Renovating blighted houses in at-risk neighborhoods
• Enabling low-income, elderly and disabled homeowners to stay in their homes by installing wheelchair ramps and other assistive measures
• Teaching architecture and local history to school children through creative learning initiatives
• Hosting workshops and training sessions to share valuable information about DIY home repairs and energy efficiency modifications
• Assisting first-time homebuyers with securing financing through special grants, programs, and home purchase incentives
• Advocating for national and state rehab tax credits to encourage economic stimulation through small- and large-scale renovations

From enabling an elderly homeowner to age in place, to inspiring a young professional to renovate a historic property, PRC is taking the long view with preserving our community’s unique architectural heritage.  Join PRC in celebrating 40 years of shaping the landscape of New Orleans in a meaningful and lasting manner ... and many more years to come.
