Who we are
Preservation Forsyth is the city and county's private non-profit preservation organization. Founded in 2007 to promote the preservation of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County's architecturally, historically and culturally significant buildings, neighborhoods and landscapes through education and advocacy.
Throughout its operation, Preservation Forsyth has worked to make a richer environment in the city by coordinating programs and local communities to encourage preservation-based community revitalization.
What we do.
As a nonprofit organization, Preservation Forsyth provides information, offers technical assistance, holds conferences and workshops, and conducts research and advocacy on critical revitalization issues. Following the proven Main Street Four-Point Approach®, Preservation Forsyth provides a foundation for the community to organize themselves for success, improve the design of their neighborhoods, promote their district, and enhance the economic base of the community.
What sets Preservation Forsyth apart is the powerful network: the unique combination of grassroots dedication to comprehensively improving quality of life at the local level, integral support and expertise provided by coordinating programs at the city, county, and state level. These community-driven efforts result in neighborhoods with strong social cohesion and economic opportunity; places that support and sustain innovation and opportunity; places where people of diverse perspectives and backgrounds come together to shape the future.
