About Us

The Tallahassee Trust is dedicated to advancing historic preservation in Tallahassee and the surrounding communities.

Our volunteer Board of Directors and our professional staff work with the City of Tallahassee, Leon County, and its citizens to identify and to evaluate our local treasures. The Tallahassee Trust offers professional historic preservation assistance to local governments in areas such as growth management, economic development, and revitalization and planning.

The Trust assists the public, private organizations, and individuals with public awareness events focusing on the community’s heritage and provides professional staff to the Tallahassee/Leon County Architectural Review Board. The Tallahassee Trust maintains, updates, and makes available its Historic Preservation Special Collections Library and Research Center and its Local Inventory of Historic Resources. The Tallahassee Trust is dedicated to promoting heritage tourism and education.

While major accomplishments of the Tallahassee Trust are impressive, the day-to-day activities continue to have a major impact on rural Leon County and Florida’s capital city.

How the Tallahassee Trust was founded
The Tallahassee Trust for Historic Preservation, Inc. (Tallahassee Trust) is a not-for-profit organization that was created in 1988 as the direct support organization for the Historic Tallahassee Preservation Board (HTPB).

Although the HTPB was dissolved in May 1997 by act of legislature, the Tallahassee Trust continued in existence with the commitment to provide historic preservation services to the community that had been provided previously by the HTPB and the Tallahassee Trust jointly.
