The National Trust for Historic Preservation

invites us to "share a place that helps tell a little-known or underrepresented piece of the American story."

The was created to serve this purpose, seeking to explore little-known pieces of the past so that, from this mosaic of diverse cultures and people, emerges a more authentic picture of the unique heritage we all share and a unified path toward the future. 


Integral to this mission is the principal that democracy can only function with an informed citizenry, whose active involvement as stakeholders in the decision-making process is encouraged and valued so that the policies and priorities we establish today will stand the test of time. 

Every piece matters, especially yours. 

Explore and contribute.
