At Historic Albany Foundation we put advocacy first. A great deal of our time, both staff and board, goes to advocacy efforts - it is the undercurrent of everything we do. Our efforts have managed to keep many unique buildings in Albany standing - including Church of the Holy Innocents, Wellington Row, Hinckel Brewery & 48 Hudson among others.

We continue to be an unwavering champion of 'best practices' in preserving historical structures and of protecting endangered buildings within our community, and hope to be long into the future.
