We are the only private, statewide nonprofit organization advocating for the preservation of Minnesota’s historic resources.
Why do we do what we do? Preservation is sustainable, beautiful and economically sound, yet our state has already lost many irreplaceable structures. Through our programs, PAM unites people, businesses and neighborhoods to enhance communities by protecting and promoting old buildings.
If you own an old home, care about the environment, enjoy restaurants housed in historic buildings, or appreciate the unique character that original structures bring to your city or town, you believe in preservation. Join us today.
PAM was established in 1981 by a small band of citizens concerned about the loss of Minnesota’s old buildings and the lack of protection for existing ones.
Today, PAM is supported by a growing number of members, donors and sponsors. We work with groups like the State Historic Preservation Office and the National Trust for Historic Preservation to preserve our communities. PAM is a true alliance; when neighborhood groups and local supporters engage with us through our programs, we are able to address emerging threats to rare historic sites or structures. We partner with businesses large and small for commercial and residential rehab projects. We educate industry professionals about heritage preservation, and we help develop networks among people and organizations to increase awareness of state history and community preservation
