We Assist

Missouri Preservation is here to help.

We understand that not every preservationist has a college degree, not every contractor knows the ins and outs of the Secretary of Interior Standards for Historic Rehabilitation, and not all people know where to begin when they buy a historic property.

While we’re a small staff of two, Missouri Preservation knows a lot of people and resources! Check out the links below and if you can’t find what you need, give us a call!

Our Preservation Resource Directory  is a small list of contractors, preservation specialists, accountants and other preservation related businesses that might assist you in your next project!

The National Park Service has compiled a large catalog of technical preservation information over the years. These topics range from proper ways to restore historic wood windows, to cleaning historic brick.

The National Register of Historic Places is an important step to ensuring the historic places that matter to our nation (and state’s) history are not forgotten. Although listing on the national register does not offer immunity to a historic building, it does open the door for preservation-related funding.

The Secretary of Interior Standards are guidelines for the treatment of historic structures. Anyone working with the historic preservation tax credit will need to be familiar with these standards.

The Historic Preservation Tax Credit credit program is a wonderful resource for our historic buildings and local communities, but navigating the process can be confusing if you haven’t dealt with it before. Find a variety of tax credit resources here!

The Certified Local Government Program is overseen by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources — State Historic Preservation Office.

Easements are a good way to ensure a historic building is cared for.
