Historic Preservation

Who We Are

How does the State Historic Preservation Office help Nebraska? We provide a variety of programs for all people who are interested in preserving the places that help tell the many stories of Nebraska’s history. Our office has expertise in architecture, archeology, and history. While a lot of our work involves old buildings, we also seek to preserve other built structures, landscapes, objects, and artifacts of historic significance. We encourage people to think about how historic places can be rehabilitated to benefit their communities. The work of Historic Preservation seeks to honor the past while looking to the future.
