The Preserve America program is a federal effort to encourage and support community efforts to preserve the country’s cultural and natural heritage. The program became an authorized part of the national historic preservation program when President Obama signed the Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009.
As a Preserve America community, Windsor will be listed in a Web-based directory that showcases Windsor’s preservation efforts and heritage tourism destinations.
Nationwide, there are nearly 900 Preserve America communities.
The goals of the program are to create greater shared knowledge about the nation’s past, to strengthen regional identities and to increase local participation in preserving the country’s cultural and natural heritage assets.
