Historic Preservation is Good For Delaware!

Next Tuesday, March 9, at 2 pm, Governor Markell is holding a press conference in front of the Queen Theater at 500 Market Street in Wilmington to announce his support for the reauthorization of the Delaware Historic Preservation Tax Credit Program.

Since 2001, the program's $34 million in tax credits have helped rehabilitate 75 buildings, generated more than $166 million in private investment, and yielded almost $90 million in household income.

Now is an excellent time to contact your state representatives to let them know that you support the reauthorization of the Delaware HIstoric Preservation Tax Credit Program.

For more information about the impact of this program on Delaware, check out the two new reports that are available on the State Historic Preservation Office website here.
