A Dedicated Fund For Historic Preservation In STL?

How's that old saying go? "Better to have and not need than need and not have?"

Well, at the present time, we've got more of the latter than the former when it comes to dedicated historic preservation funding in St. Louis.

So, this Saturday, from 5:00 - 7:30 PM at the Schlafly Bottleworks in Maplewood, supporters of historic preservation are gathering to raise emergency stabilization funds for the Mullanphy Emigrant Home.

Maybe the conversation will include establishing a dedicated source of funding to support historic preservation around St.Louis?

If you're interested in promoting the cause of historic preservation, please join us this Saturday in Maplewood and be a part of the effort.

City voters have already approved dedicated funds for demo of dangerous buildings and creation of affordable and accessible housing.

Both could use more money and seem more urgent.

Personally, I would like to see the private sector step up and do this.
