Dedicated to preserving and celebrating the architecture, historic places, and communities in the varied landscapes of our prairie state.

"Some people express skepticism about the venture of preserving all of North Dakota, and rightly so. That is not the mission of PND. Rather, we assist local preservationists in the work they believe to be vital to their community. Our largest aim is to establish a network across the state of individuals who are committed to preservation. Pure and simple, the plan is to assist in the development of local preservation policies and to promote historic preservation, cultural education, and tourism."    
--Suzzanne Kelley, former PND president
