Provide your views on Iowa preservation

The Iowa State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) is leading the effort to develop a new historic preservation plan for Iowa’s professional and grassroots preservationists across the state. Historic preservation is the effort to preserve and protect culture and tradition through the physical preservation and protection of historic buildings, landscapes and other sites. Historic preservation does not stop with the physical, and includes the efforts to use those historic properties for education, interpretation, cultural enrichment, and public benefit. This plan will address the preservation of historic buildings, bridges, cemeteries, prehistoric and historic archaeology, and other resources in the state, and it will identify our state’s priorities and goals for preservation for the next ten years. The statewide historic preservation plan provides the framework for the ongoing work of all of Iowa’s preservation partners. Your input will make it a stronger plan.

Please take a few moments to share your views on Iowa preservation. You have the option of completing this survey anonymously or providing your name and contact information. If you provide your name and contact information, you may be contacted by the Department of Cultural Affairs with updates on historic preservation activities and events.

Updates about the preservation plan project will be posted on our website at https://iowaculture.gov/history/preservation/preservation-planning/statewide-preservation-planning.
