Kansas Historic Preservation Office (KHPO)
Program Explanation

The state historic preservation program fosters the preservation of the archeological, architectural, and cultural heritage of Kansas. The KHPO does not itself preserve properties but seeks to heighten the awareness of property owners and decision makers. The KHPO serves as the staff for the state historic preservation officer and administers the state as well as the federal preservation program within Kansas. Historic preservation assistance is provided at no charge to federal, state, and local governments; planning, engineering, architectural, and other consulting firms; local historical societies; other non-profit organizations; private property owners; and any interested organization, firm, or individual whether or not the properties have been listed on the national or state registers.
