Established in Lafayette, Indiana in 1973, the Wabash Valley Trust for Historic Preservation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing a unified effort to educate and encourage interest in the heritage and architecture of the Wabash Valley area. We subscribe to preservation in the broadest sense, encompassing quality of life issues that affect environment, urban districts, neighborhoods, and rural areas.
Just as the built environment did not evolve overnight, preservation planning takes long range vision. Not only is the Trust involved in current community issues, we work hard to influence the long range future of preservation in Lafayette, Indiana and the Wabash Valley area. We have programs to educate residents on the importance of preservation and are building networks here in our community along with state and national leaders.
We believe old buildings have stories to tell and that they bring character and vibrancy to our community.
Our mission at Wabash Valley Trust for Historic Preservation is to protect, preserve, and promote the historic architectural heritage of our community.
Our vision is to be the leading force in our community that recognizes historic preservation efforts, which enhance the quality of life for all citizens.
