Who Are We

We are a broad coalition of community, industry representatives and preservationists committed to rehabilitating the building which define our community rich cultural heritage.

We are funded by private donations. FoMWA uses these generous donations to support the restoration and upkeep of beloved landmarks. Our 12 years of historic preservation work is enjoyed by our community.
