Digital, Print and Social Media Marketing Campaign

***Grant Winner, Second Place***

The 2019 Partners in Preservation: Main Streets campaign featured 20 sites that each highlight and raise awareness for the often unrecognized contributions of women to American history and society. From the home of the first female African American doctor in Denver, Colorado, to famed author Harper Lee’s hometown courthouse in Monroeville, Alabama, these sites celebrate the triumphs, struggles and rich history of women in America.

On October 30, American Express and the National Trust for Historic Preservation, in collaboration with Main Street America, announced the winners of the 2019 Partners in Preservation campaign. The 13 winning sites received a total of $1.8 million in grants to fund their preservation projects, in addition to an initial grant of $10,000 each to increase public awareness of these historic places and build grassroots support for their Main Street district.
