Preservation Alliance of West Virginia

The Preserve WV AmeriCorps program is Preservation Alliance of West Virginia’s statewide service initiative where members help main streets thrive, help communities capture their local history, and preserve beloved West Virginia landmarks. The purpose of the Preserve WV AmeriCorps program is to implement historic preservation and heritage tourism projects throughout West Virginia by way of historic resource re-use, improvement, and interpretation. A historic resource in this context could be a building, museum/archival collection, structure, landscape, or historic district/downtown commercial district. Members' service will emphasize community development and revitalization through projects focused on historic preservation, volunteer management, and cultural heritage tourism development. Members will be placed with individual sites throughout the state, ranging from museums and archives to Main Street organizations and city agencies.
