The Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach is a private, nonprofit membership organization dedicated to the preservation of the historic, architectural, as well as cultural heritage of Palm Beach, Florida. Through advocacy initiatives, educational programs, architectural resources, and cultural events, the foundation’s goal is to encourage the community to learn about and save the historic buildings that make the town of Palm Beach special.
Founded in 1981, the organization is committed to honoring and preserving Palm Beach’s original architectural treasures and public spaces. Honorable Judge James R. Knott, a dedicated historian and author, facilitated the establishment of the Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach.〔(The Judge Knott Award by the Historical Society of Palm Beach County ), retrieved on August 1, 2007〕 It has lobbied local and county government to change policy and enact legislation that directly and legally protects Palm Beach’s architectural assets.〔(Rother, Larry. "Palm Beach Journal; New for Season: To-Do at Post Estate" The New York Times, October 15, 1991 ), retrieved on August 1, 2007〕 The buildings and styles of Mizner, Wyeth,〔(Wyeth designed the Governor's Mansion ), retrieved on August 1, 2007〕 Fatio, and Volk are as unique as they are important to the overall character and charm of the town. The organization not only encourages education and appreciation for these historical structures, but also works against the forces of speculation, development, and degradation to ensure they remain a vital part of the community.〔(Rozhon, Tracie. "TURF; Trouble in Paradise: The Changing of the Guard" The New York Times, March 25, 1999 ), retrieved on August 1, 2007〕 The restoration, rehabilitation, and conservation of historic structures and public spaces can spur economic and cultural development.

Millions of dollars have gone to purchase property, as well as into restoration and rehabilitation over the years.
