Our History

 

Historic Albany Foundation was first created in 1974 to advocate for the preservation of the Center Square and Hudson Park neighborhoods after the construction of Empire State Plaza and Interstate 787. More than 1,500 buildings were demolished for the new construction and a proposed cross town arterial threatened hundreds more. Since that time, the Foundation’s mission has been to preserve and protect buildings that have architectural, historic or civic value, by providing technical assistance, education, and advocacy.

For over 40 years, Historic Albany Foundation has played a major role in shaping Albany’s built environment by working closely with historic property owners, neighborhood stakeholders, private developers, and elected officials and government agencies.
