Revolving Fund Program – Actively Saving Endangered Buildings

Louisiana Trust’s Revolving Fund Program began in November 2015 and is active in saving endangered historic buildings around the state. We currently have projects in Alexandria and Homer. If you know of an endangered historic building in your area, please let us know.

Mission

The Louisiana Trust for Historic Preservation advocates, promotes and preserves historic places representing our diverse culture.

History

The Louisiana Trust for Historic Preservation was founded in 1979 for cultural and educational purposes pertaining to historic preservation. The Founders understood that an organized state-wide network of preservationists was a critical component to promote the preservation of the diverse culture and historic resources of Louisiana through education, technical assistance, outreach and advocacy. The Louisiana Trust for Historic Preservation is the statewide partner of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

Covering All Corners of Louisiana

LTHP is a 501(c)3 organization that was established in 1979 as a non-profit educational corporation chartered by the state of Louisiana and governed by a board of directors representing all areas of the state. Donations to the Louisiana Trust are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

Most Endangered Structures

Structures listed on the Most Endangered list are significantly threatened by demolition, neglect, lack of maintenance, inappropriate development or other threats. Ideally these structures are historic in being more than 50 years of age and are historically significant. Preservation Louisiana and a Field Services Representative conducts on-site visits and works with the property owner / community leaders in creating a viable preservation strategy for the structure.
