The Virginia Tech Historic Preservation Society is a student-run organization in the College of Architecture and Urban Studies at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia. Founded in 2018, we have grown from a handful of classmates to a robust community of students, faculty, staff and members of the general public. 

...preservation engages the past in a conversation with the present over a mutual concern for the future.

-William Murtagh, first keeper of the National Register of Historic Places


Our goal is to ​promote, acquaint, and involve interested students and faculty of Virginia Tech in the field of preservation through trips, tours, conferences, and invited guest speakers. VTHPS also acts as a forum for career opportunities through networking and internships. Members strive to not only benefit and educate those involved in preservation at Virginia Tech, but also serve the university and local communities by hosting a number of events throughout the school year.
