Urgent Projects

Our Mission

We need your help immediately to stop the destruction of homes and buildings that are significant to our history. Basic preservation is necessary in order to save some houses, while others need extensive repair and restoration.

Museum Hill Neighborhood Association is a vocal advocate for restoring & preserving our historic homes, buildings & neighborhoods. Our members participate in many preservation efforts in the City.

Historic neighborhoods suffer from neglect and deterioration. Devote an afternoon to weeding gardens, uncovering brick sidewalks, and cleaning up the yards of abandoned houses and you will see, first-hand, why we love our neighborhood and the buildings in it.
