DESCRIPTION:Boston's architectural heritage is a national treasure, as well as crucial to our municipal economy. It is also highly vulnerable to innumerable, scattered, random acts of carelessness, in the guise of "Progress." BPA is a watchdog with a constructive spirit.
Formed in 1978 as an alliance of 50 historic-preservation and related organizations, BPA provides a single, strong, authoritative voice to preserve and enhance Boston's unique and irreplaceable historic buildings and other features, and to increase public awareness of their values.
In addition to assisting individual high-profile projects like Fenway Park, BPA provides technical assistance to neighborhoods who wish to preserve a part of their heritage -- projects have included Dorchester, Mission Hill, Roxbury and Jamaica Plain, Beacon Hill and the North End.
BPA derives 20% of its budget from charitable donations; it relies heavily on volunteers for both special needs and routine activities. Your support is needed.
