The Abilene Preservation League is a non-profit organization established in 1977 to preserve historic properties and promote preservation in Abilene, TX. We promote alternatives to demolition when structures or sites are threatened with loss, due to neglect and deterioration or new site development. The Abilene Preservation League promotes increased public awareness and participates with other public and private organizations to save, restore and preserve historically significant structures in Abilene, Texas.

The vision of the Abilene Preservation League is to provide leadership, education and imagination to inspire a common vision of preserving the places and stories of our shared heritage to enrich the lives of West Texans.
