About Historic Murray First Foundation

Historic Murray First Foundation recognizes the wonderful history and architecture that survives within our city limits. Our mission is advocacy, education, and fundraising to preserve and repurpose the unique architecture of Murray City. Through generous contributions and grants, we seek to partner with donors and our local Murray citizens to maintain the architectural integrity that remains in our community.

By preserving and rehabilitating these physical reminders of our past, we can create a sense of place and an environment that instills civic pride and community spirit.

Historic preservation is a forward-looking, economic development, and community revitalization strategy:

  • It provides naturally available affordable housing
  • Creates hidden density
  • Older buildings are built at human scale and lend themselves to walkability
  • Historic preservation conserves resources and reduces waste
  • Adaptive reuse is a sustainable alternative to demolition
  • Despite common misconceptions, rehabilitation often produces a cost savings compared to new construction
  • Historic buildings have a higher concentration of local business, and funds spent in these businesses typically stay local
  • Property values are often higher for historic buildings, which also increases tax revenues

More importantly, we recognize the important role that historic preservation plays in shaping communities for the present and the future. By preserving and rehabilitating significant cultural and historic resources, we are able to learn from the past in order to improve, enrich, and even enliven the Murray City that is passed to future generations. By not preserving, we stand to lose the already tenuous grasp we have on our past. If we do not work to preserve the diminishing presence of our historic places we undermine the stability and strength of our future communities.
