Major Updates

Missouri Preservation has some MAJOR UPDATES

In the last two months we’ve been super busy. Check out 2 of our updates.


We are no longer located at the Katy Depot in Boonville. We are going to miss that lovely space but we are moving onward and upwards. Up to the eighth floor to be exact. Our new address is: 319 N. 4th St., #850, St. Louis, MO 63102.

We are now located at the historic Security Building. Come on by and say hello!


Missouri Preservation Conference

Due to venue booking and logistical concerns, The City of Hannibal and Missouri Preservation have decided to move the dates of the Missouri statewide Historic Preservation Conference, previously scheduled for October 19-21, 2016.


Rescheduling for the May 2017 dates will allow us to better suit the needs of the preservation community and will provide an opportunity for us to celebrate National Preservation Month during the conference.  Please plan to attend the 2017 Hannibal conference and explore the region’s rich heritage.

We look forward to an enhanced experience for our local preservation commission members, consultants and preservationists both seasoned and beginner, due to the extra planning time. Please watch your mailbox and email for more information on registration as it becomes available.  Hotel reservations can still be made at any time at the Mark Twain Best Western with a special rate of $83.00 per night using the code “Missouri Preservation.” Call the hotel directly to book your room at (573)248-1150. We suggest that you call to cancel any October reservation you may have made.

For more information, contact Missouri Preservation at (660)882-5946 and check out the CONFERENCE tab for future updates.

We had a great time in Kansas City at this year’s Unhappy Hour. The event, which announced to the 2016 Places in Peril list, was held at the Kansas City Museum. Eleven new endangered historic places were named to the list for 2016 and five were carried over from the previous year. To learn more about the event check out the Places in Peril tab and to read more about 2016’s Final List click here.
