The Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation was founded in 1980 to preserve the architectural heritage and cultural history of the Village. GVSHP is a leader in protecting the sense of place and human scale that define the Village’s unique community. Its programs include: Educational outreach in the form of public lectures, tours, exhibitions and publications, and a school program that teaches children about Greenwich Village history and architecture; Preservation leadership on such issues as preservation of the Village waterfront and expansion of the Greenwich Village Historic District; Preservation projects that promote an understanding of the Village’s historic importance, such as the Greenwich Village Preservation Archive and Oral History Project; Consultation services on a wide variety of preservation issues, with GVSHP serving the community as historian, educator, archival resource, and technical consultant.
