    Every day, all year long, HKC works to revitalize historic structures that give our community visible connections to its past and lends irreplaceable visual character to the streetscape. These places shape lives, and when they’re gone, they leave a void that can’t be filled. Saving threatened buildings takes teamwork. Now, or on December 3rd, #GivingTuesday, you can be a part of that team. Join HKC.
