Save America’s Treasures In the News

Welcome to another edition of Save America’s Treasures In the News, a roundup of SAT projects that have been mentioned in articles and stories online.

Recently, the Aspen Institute Citizenship and American Identity Program created What Every American Should Know, an initiative that asks Americans to answer the question: “What do you think Americans should know to be civically and culturally literate?”

Through a series of blogs, they feature key terms submitted as responses to that question, exploring the context of those terms, and connecting history to modern day. Each of the terms highlighted in this series are significant historical properties and collections that have been preserved by Save America’s Treasures.

Stories of saving those treasures will be shared through partnership with the American Architectural Foundation.
