The Historic Preservation Association is a student organization working in cooperation with the Department of History and the Historic Preservation Program at Southeast Missouri State University


Pagemaster: LaDonna Garner


Welcome to our website!

The Historic Preservation Association is a student group here at Southeast Missouri State University comprised of undergraduate and graduate students in historic preservation, history, anthropology and other related (and unrelated) disciplines.

Our mission is to:

        bring together the beginning and advanced students of historic preservation with faculty and community leaders;

    encourage the spirit of regional preservation of historic sites, artifacts, and cultures that will reflect ongoing trends nationwide;

        and to foster involvement with preservation activities and various other organizations while providing resources for higher education and job opportunities.

We plan to host volunteer projects, guest speakers and field trips to regional sites such as Ste. Genevieve, Missouri, Springfield Illinois, and Wickliffe Mounds, Kentucky, so that members have a chance to interact and experience the area, people and profession.

We also hold an Annual Spring Banquet to wrap up our school year and reflect back on all we have done! A guest speaker is invited to give a short talk on their involvement in historic preservation and offer a personal view of projects and experiences.

We encourage anyone with an interest in history, preservation, or just getting involved with a great group of individuals to stop by one of our meetings or email us and let us know about yourself! 

Stay updated by bookmarking us. Please check back often as this site is updated with group announcements, the latest meeting minutes and group photos.

Join us for discussions on HPA Facebook!
