The Bucket List + Photo Competition

The Alliance is turning 40 this year! To celebrate, we're sending you out with a Bucket List to explore the city. Our favorite photographs will be published in our AllianceAnnual and projected onto the big screen at our biggest event and party of the year. Boston's premier architectural photographer, Peter Vanderwarker, will judge photographs to be selected for cash prizes. Tag your photos on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter with #PreservationBucketList. To compete, just add the Bucket List number. Share your photos and follow the fun!

Historic Tax Credit Saved!

The federal Historic Tax Credit (HTC) has been preserved at 20 percent in the final tax reform bill thanks to the tireless work of advocates from around the nation. Although the proposed legislation weakens some elements of the HTC, this is a major win for the preservation community. We pulled the HTC from the precipice with your help as you joined us in reaching out to Congress with your letters and calls. Special thanks to Boston City Council, Mayor Walsh, and all of you who contacted your legislators when we asked for your support!
