National Preservation Month

Redmond History

May is National Preservation Month

The City of Redmond, in coordination with the Redmond Historical Society, celebrates National Preservation Month in May. "New Age of Preservation: Embark, Inspire, Engage" is the theme of this month-long celebration sponsored by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

Since the founding of The National Trust for Historic Preservation in 1949, communities all across America have be preserving and restoring their historic sites. There is no better way to know where we come from than having the past right there for us to witness, and with the help from this organization cities and towns have been able to sustain their past and ensure it lasts into the future. Along with the assistance that The National Trust for Historic Preservation offers; it also provides leadership, education, advocacy, and resources to save America's diverse historic places and revitalize our communities.

In Downtown Redmond, a number of historic property and business owners have contributed to the preservation of our community's historic places by making sustainable re-investments in buildings. Visit each of the City's Landmarks today to support Redmond's heritage and local economy!
