2019 National Preservation Month
Every May, GSA celebrates our historic buildings, which serve tenant agencies across the country. These federal buildings - more than 500 - are living parts of their communities, and collectively illustrate the social, economic, and physical growth of our nation. As a forward-thinking and innovative steward, GSA continuously rehabilitates these buildings constructed by preceding generations to make them work for 21st-century clients.
