It is estimated that across America there may be as many as 30,000 remote, historically significant structures that are abandoned, laying in decay and disrepair. This little-known plight must be brought to public attention as quickly as possible or the critical historic back stories these sites represent will be lost forever. With your help, millions of viewers will soon discover the story of HistoriCorps® and its dedicated volunteers by way of a remarkable new television series, SAVING PLACES®. It is impossible to overemphasize the dramatic effect this episodic documentary will have on HistoriCorps®, and the public perception of historic preservation.

You can be directly responsible for making it happen by contributing to this Kickstarter campaign, which ends June 11. Your donation of any amount from $10 to $10,000 helps us to cover the costs of final production and negotiating distribution and broadcasting agreements for our Premier Season.
