The mission of Quincy Preserves, Inc., is to foster awareness of and to promote appreciation of the historic architecture of Quincy, Illinois, and Adams County and to encourage active membership involvement in the recognizing, protecting, maintaining, and displaying of these structures. Starting as an outgrowth of the Quincy Society of Fine Arts in the mid 1970’s, Quincy Preserves has encouraged owners of historically and architecturally significant structures to restore and maintain them to their original condition. Since that time many homes and buildings have been preserved. This movement continues throughout the entire city.
