The National Trust for Historic Preservation's theme is "This Place Matters." We are fortunate to have so many place that matter in Arcata.
May is National Historic Preservation Month, and Arcata has some great things going on.
What does "Historic Preservation" mean? It is the role the City takes in endeavoring to preserve, conserve, and protect buildings, objects, landscapes, and other objects of historical significance. Ensuring that historic properties are maintained and honored in our community helps to revitalize neighborhoods, foster local pride, and maintain Arcata's character.
