The mission of the Hartford Preservation Alliance (HPA) is to preserve and revitalize Hartford\'s unique architectural heritage and neighborhood character. Buildings with distinctive architecture define our downtown and the neighborhood character of Hartford. But in recent years demolition has become the common response to problems of blight and neighborhood revitalization. Preserving Hartford\'s historic architecture maintains ties to our heritage and is a key element to the revitalization of our city. Hundreds of buildings have been demolished over the last few years, many of which were part of the essential fabric of the neighborhoods that grew in Hartford from the 1880s through the 1920s. Many more buildings are in danger of being leveled.
