Thanks to all Fishtown supporters who voted for us in the Dwell Magazine ‘Rethinking Preservation’ Contest. Fishtown Preservation Society had over 5,000 votes, and out of 118 landmarks, we made it into the top 10!
The Dwell award of $10,000 would have been dedicated to developing and installing exhibits in Fishtown, to tell visitors about the rich history of Fishtown. Believe it or not, most visitors do not know anything about Fishtown or its colorful past.
However, you can still help! Because we know you care about Fishtown and its future, we am asking that you contribute to our interpretation fund. Please give at whatever level you can, knowing that FPS depends upon fans and supporters like you!
We know that the more people understand the history of Fishtown, the more likely they will be to help support this much loved place. Your gift will help share the stories of Fishtown, and help ensure the preservation and understanding of this rare Great Lakes working waterfront and cultural landscape. You can be instrumental in educating the public and helping to garner the support that Fishtown needs to fulfill its mission to ensure that Fishtown is a Forever Place.

Thank you for making it possible for Fishtown to count on you! For more information on the Rethinking Preservation winner visit Dwell Magazine’s website.
