Partners in Preservation is a program that pairs American Express with the National Trust for Historic Preservation in an initiative to aid in the preservation of historic sites in the US. The initiative pledged $5 million over 5 years and this year the focus is on Chicago.
Twenty five historic sites are in the running to receive the funds, but the final step is an online vote. The public can vote once per day from now through October 10 for their favorite. A special open house event at the sites is coming up next weekend (9/15-16) where you can visit and find out more. A few more of the spots that are included:
For more info on the initiative, the historic sites and to vote, visit the Partners in Preservation site.
