The National Trust for Historic Preservation and American Express announced Partners in Preservation: Main Streets, a community-based partnership created in 2006 to engage the public in preserving historic places. This year’s theme celebrates the often untold history of women across America.
Starting Today, 20 diverse sites across the country, including Savannah’s own Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace are competing for public votes to win $2 million in grant money to execute much-needed repairs to preserve their historic sites for future generations. The public can vote up to 5 times per day at VoteYourMainStreet.org.
Voting opens today, Sept. 24 and closes Oct. 29 - community members can cast their votes at VoteYourMainStreet.org, or in-person at the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace open house event on Saturday Oct. 26.
