California Preservation Foundation

The California Preservation Foundation provides statewide leadership, advocacy, and education to ensure the protection of California’s diverse cultural heritage and historic places.

From architectural icons to transcendental cultural landscapes, California is rife with places worth celebrating. The California Preservation Foundation educates and advocates for their protection, celebrating the places that matter most to Californians, from its monumental works of architecture and engineering, to the diminutive-yet stunning roadside vernacular architecture of places like Route 66.
