Learn About the Historic Albany Foundation
Established in 1974, the Historic Albany Foundation promotes the preservation and appreciation of the built environment in and around the city of Albany. This mandate has been fulfilled over the years through a combination of public education, promotion and membership, technical assistance, community projects, advocacy for endangered buildings, publications, tours, lectures, and the operation of their Architectural Parts Warehouse.
The Foundation aims to continue playing a major role in preserving and protecting local historic buildings by working closely with property owners, neighborhood stakeholders, private developers, and elected officials and government agencies.
