May 2009 has been designated Historic Preservation Month and the Forsyth County Historic Resources Commission (HRC) is promoting local historic architecture and landmarks with the theme of “This Place Matters!”

This year, the HRC presents a This Place Matters photo-sharing campaign. To get involved, simply print out the This Place Matters sign and take a photo of yourself, friends or family holding the sign in front of a place in our community that is important to you. Then post the photo to the City of Winston-Salem’s facebook page or send it to to show off places that matter to you!
