The New Mexico Historic Preservation Division identifies and protects New Mexico's cultural resources, including its archaeological sites, architectural and engineering achievements, cultural landscapes and diverse heritage. We help communities identify, evaluate, preserve, and revitalize their historic, archaeological, and cultural resources.
Preservation happens locally. It is site specific—your building, your block, your town, your landscape. It is built on partnerships. Our redesigned website provides easy access to the information you need to help preserve New Mexico's diverse cultural heritage, encourage community revitalization through re-use of existing buildings and enhance heritage tourism opportunities.
New at HPD
Public school districts are subject to state historic preservation laws. When considering changes to property in your district, reviewing "School Districts and Historic Resources" will help incorporate preservation planning into your project before you consult HPD as part of the process.
