NCCo Council Recognizes May 2008 As National Historic Preservation Month

Wilmington, DE… At their April 22nd meeting, New Castle County Council unanimously passed a resolution sponsored by Councilman Robert S. Weiner to recognize May 2008 as National Historic Preservation Month

“This Place Matters" is the theme of the month-long celebration, which is sponsored by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

Since the National Trust created Preservation Week in 1971 to spotlight grassroots preservation efforts in America, it has grown into an annual celebration observed by small towns and big cities with events ranging from architectural and historic tours and award ceremonies, to fundraising events, educational programs and heritage travel opportunities. Due to its overwhelming popularity, the National Trust has extended the celebration to the entire month of May and declared it Preservation Month to provide an even longer opportunity to celebrate the diverse and unique heritage of our country’s cities and states and enable more Americans to become involved in the growing preservation movement. This year will mark the first official Preservation Month.

“I and the other members of Council recognize the need the preserve our historical heritage.  It must be preserved so that all citizens and future generations may learn from the ways and tradition of out forefather” stated Councilman Weiner. Councilman Weiner further stated” When historic buildings and neighborhoods are allowed to deteriorate, a part of our past disappears forever.  When that happens, we lose history that helps us know who we are and lose opportunities to live and work in the kinds of interesting and attractive surroundings that older buildings can provide”.
