The Preservation Alliance of Minnesota is the only statewide, private, non-profit organization advocating for the preservation of Minnesota’s historic resources. PAM was established in 1981 by citizens concerned about the loss of irreplaceable segments of our state’s heritage: structures, neighborhoods, community fabric.
Today, PAM works with groups like the State Historic Preservation Office and the National Trust for Historic Preservation to preserve our communities. It steps in when rare sites or structures are threatened. It works to educate citizens about heritage preservation. It develops networks among people and organizations to help increase awareness of state history, community preservation, and important community values.
