News, Training & Issues

The Bureau for Historic Preservation's blog was launched on January 3, 2013. New posts are published every Wednesday. Posts are authored by BHP staff, other PHMC staff, staff from other state agencies, or non-profit partners.

The Bureau delivers an e-newsletter via email on the first Tuesday of each month. The newsletter includes links and teaser descriptions of the previous month's blog posts. There are also news announcements, special events, marker dedications, and other items of interest to the preservation community. To subscribe to the e-newsletter please visit our blog.


2014 PA Farm Show!
The PA Department of Agriculture invited the PHMC Marker Scavenger Hunt back to the Pennsylvania Farm Show to continue our successful partnership. The week-long event occurred 1/3/2014 through 1/11/2014. At the Farm Show, a new car magnet was unveiled. It was designed to promote the Pennsylvania Historical Marker Program and was distributed to families and individuals who completed the Marker Scavenger Hunt. In the near future the new marker magnet will be available through The State Museum of Pennsylvania's store located inside the main entrance of the museum and at ShopPaHeritage.


We will consider posting announcements of preservation-related events on our website. Please e-mail Scott Doyle with event name, time, date, place, contact person, and other relevant information.
