Lake Eola Heights Historic Neighborhood Association

Orange Preservation Trust and You

You may have either heard or seen about Orange Preservation Trust, OPT, at previous meetings or events or noticed it was one of the beneficiaries of our last 2 garden tours. OPT has been in the formation process for about the last 2 years and is finally up and running and registered with the state as an official 501(c)3  non-profit.

Greater Orlando has been lacking a centralized organization from which to catalog, educate, promote and advocate for historic cultural resources. Individuals and grassroots organizations such has LEHHNA have stepped forward on issues such as Tinker Field, the proposed demolition of the Central Christian Church and the Windermere School House with limited expertise and resources that has resulted in varying degrees of success. The goal of OPT is to become the “go to” place in the Orange County area where individuals and groups can be provided the resources and guidance on preservation issues as well as becoming a promoter of the economic advantages and importance of historic preservation, a liaison between the private and public aspects.

OPT is currently running on a exploratory board and is looking for new members as well as candidates interested in volunteering as board members and future committee members. Obligations are minimal while the rewards are great.

 Memberships are available on a level based schedule for both individuals and organizations. Please visit their website to learn more as well as signing up on-line on their secured membership link.

 Join LEHHNA at the 2nd Quarter 2015 General Membership Meeting on May 14th as we present OPT with our donation from the garden tour!
