"Preserving Architectural Heritage and Community Traditions in New Mexico and the Southwest"

Cornerstones Community Partnerships helps save architectural treasures throughout the Southwest and the Mexican Frontera. Since 1986, Cornerstones has helped preserve more than 300 critical historic sites, structures and churches. Cornerstones prides itself in only using traditional building materials, teaching culturally sensitive educational programs and working directly with our educational partners in training both youth and adults. The method Cornerstones uses is unique; we find opportunities for the community members to learn the skills necessary to build, preserve and maintain their own historic treasures. We act as advisors, technical authorities and mentors to the people who want to save iconic architecture. Join us!

Cornerstones is a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit historic preservation organization located in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Our projects have been based in Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Arizona, California, Utah and in many states of the Mexican Frontera.
