Documentation is Preservation
MPA provides professional research, documentation, and preservation planning services to private individuals, and local, state and federal agencies. When buildings and places are threatened by demolition or new development, documentation in the form of research, inventory, photography, condition assessments, National Register eligibility reports and/or nominations, historic structure reports, interpretive plans, and public meetings raise awareness and encourage future preservation.
Re-Imagine Montana: National Parks, Historic Landmarks, Trails and Monuments Across Time is a project to support artists in creating artwork for a traveling exhibition. The work will celebrate nationally-significant parks and historic places in Montana by re-imagining signature places depicted by artists in the past. Follow the link for more information on our artist-in-residence application.
The Big Sky Schoolhouse Survey & Preservation Project will identify and preserve historic rural properties across Montana with assistance from students and volunteers who will help us locate, document, and actively restore historically and culturally important at-risk buildings, beginning with threatened schoolhouses.
