Overview

Mission: To heighten awareness, provide education and guidance and promote sensitive restoration and preservation of New Bedford’s fine historic structures and the neighborhoods in which they are located.

Background: In 1974 a group of private citizens banded together to try to halt a state plan to widen New Bedford's premier residential avenue and destroy the tall old elm trees that had arched over the street for decades. That group became the New Bedford Preservation Society, which continues its efforts to protect and preserve properties and landscapes of historic and architectural significance throughout the city. Continuing programs involve buildings from whaling mansions to triple-deckers and from city parks to shade trees along the most modest city block. } CONTINUED
