WHAT IS HISTORIC PRESERVATION?
Historic Preservation is the practice of conserving historical buildings, objects, and landscapes. We do this to maintain the unique and historic fabric of our cities and towns, and to honor the historically significant people, places, and events that can be found in every community.

ABOUT OUR POSTER
Every year our official Archaeology and Historic Preservation Month poster puts the spotlight on an important subject, place, or people from Utah's past. Our 2023 poster uses photographs of objects and places from around the Great Salt Lake to express the look and feel of what ancient life was like. Learn more about how people have adapted to life around the Great Salt Lake through the stories of these photographs.
