The National Trust for Historic Preservation’s campaign “This Place Matters” helps people protect, enhance, and enjoy the places that matter to them! This campaign has helped to bring to light communities and locations that are important to us and preserving those locations for future generations. For those of you that know me you know that historic homes and locations are near and dear to my heart as is the National Trust for Historic Preservation. It makes me smile to see all of the photos and stories that flood into the site from people all around the country that have places near and dear to them. This is what historic preservation is all about!
