West Virginians are invited to celebrate their historic preservation success stories through the Preservation Alliance of West Virginia’s West Virginia Preservation Spotlight series.
Submitting a Preservation Spotlight story helps shine a light on the small preservation successes that can add up to significant positive change in a community. Whether it’s a homeowner restoring a historic feature of their house or a business moving into a building on historic Main Street, PAWV wants to hear about preservation “wins” both big and small.
Spotlight stories should involve a West Virginia property listed on the National Register of Historic Places or as a contributing structure to a National Historic District. If you believe your story is relevant despite not meeting this specification (perhaps an event or advocacy success), please email to check with a member of our staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submitted Preservation Spotlight stories may be featured on PAWV’s website and social media channels to celebrate the positive steps everyday West Virginians are making towards historic preservation in their communities. PAWV is accepting submissions through a Google form here.
A Word document submission form is available for download below.
