About Us

About Us


To lead and inspire people to connect with historic places, promoting community vitality.


We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working statewide for the use, reuse and preservation of historic buildings and sites. At Preservation Alliance of Minnesota (PAM), our core services help educate, motivate and strengthen communities. Our Board, staff, and partners protect and promote Minnesota’s shared environment and its heritage.

The Minnesota Historical Society and the McKnight Foundation are just two of the many groups supporting our mission. Who else is a part of PAM? Neighborhood groups join for advice on historic designations or saving important structures. Developers seek us out for investment partnerships; REALTORS® and homeowners for unique classes; Main Street communities for a proven path to economic strength.

Whether you are an individual or part of a group or business, if you believe in a future that honors the past, welcome to PAM.

PAM is the only preservation-based nonprofit in Minnesota dedicated to serving the entire state. With offices located in St. Paul and Granite Falls, it has the power of the entire PAM staff and all its capabilities behind it to deliver classes, support and input on local preservation issues as they develop.
