About Our Trust

Preserving Broward county's historical assets for future generations.

Broward Trust for Historic Preservation

We are a privately funded, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Broward County, Florida. The original Sailboat Bend Trust founded our member-supported organization.

On May 26, 1995, we filed for a domestic non-profit corporation with the State of Florida. Subsequently, Broward Trust for Historic Preservation was formed. From inception, our focus has been to keep track of historic buildings,  districts, neighborhoods, and heritage. We identify these historic resources through research, education, advocacy, designations, and homeowners’ requests.

In 2022, the Trust established itself as a non-profit that advocates for other local historical organizations. Our goal is to support these organizations through collaboration and communication.

To preserve, restore, and enhance the historic character of Broward County and support education and research regarding historic preservation.

To advocate historic designation of significant buildings and districts throughout the county and work for that status on local and, where appropriate, national levels.

To increase the involvement of residents and visitors in preserving Broward County’s legacies.

To support other historic preservation communities in their endeavors.
