We Save Old Buildings.  Not just any old house or building, but ones that meet our criteria that they may be salvageable and that their preservation will benefit the neighborhood by maintaining the historical integrity of the area. 

The Redlands Conservancy's Historic Preservation Council oversees the work of this program. The HP Council meets monthly on the first Monday of the month.  To join the Historic Preservation Council, call (909) 389-7810.
