Preserving Sarasota’s Heritage

Ringling House

Sarasota is the thirteenth Florida city to receive the “Preserve America” designation, a program which recognises community efforts to protect and preserve historic buildings for economic development and community revitalization.  The program is meant to encourage people to learn about their local historic resources and heritage through educational and heritage tourism programs.  The designation makes Sarasota eligible to matching grants up to $250,000.  Sarasota has many historic buildings including the John Ringling home, the Terrace Building, the Federal Building and the Opera House.  Click here for more information.
