This Place Matters

May is Historic Preservation Month and the National Trust for Historic Preservation is currently running a national social media campaign that encourages people to celebrate and share the places that are meaningful to them and to their communities. The Trust is encouraging individuals to post pictures of meaningful place on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. using the hashtag #ThisPlaceMatters.

Through this effort, the Trust hopes to encourage and inspire an ongoing dialogue about the importance of place and preservation in all of our lives. They plan to spotlight their favorites at  @SavingPlaces on Instagram and Twitter. They have even created a toolkit for anyone interested in creating a campaign to save an individual's favorite places.
