Preservation Greensboro, Extreme Nonprofit Makeover Recipient


Preservation Greensboro Incorporated saves our community’s historic and architectural treasures.

How PGI Works for Greensboro

Historic buildings and sites play an important role in defining our community’s identity by telling Greensboro’s unique story. They serve as tangible links to our past, energize our economy, and ensure the continuity and stability of our neighborhoods.

Today, PGI is a dynamic and resourceful organization that contributes a key role in the growth of Greensboro’s economy. With such diverse initiatives as Architectural Salvage of Greensboro, the Blandwood Museum, the Preservation Greensboro Development Fund, informative meetings, seminars, and special events, Preservation Greensboro is a constant voice within the community towards revitilization, improved quality of life, and conservation of historic resources for future generations.

As the only citywide non-profit organization dedicated to historic preservation, we depend on our partners and people like you to help us accomplish this important goal.
