    We served as the local host for the 2011 National Preservation Conference which attracted 2,547 registrants, the most in the Conference's 65-year history.  This success was made possible by a large number of organizations through the region and thousands of local volunteers.  The public, as well as the registrants, enjoyed a wide variety of events, lectures, walks, tours, educational session and events.  The conference also produced high praise to Buffalo and the region's unique and significant architectural heritage.
