The Tempe Historic Preservation Office works with the community to preserve and enhance the historic nature of our city. This is done by working with home owners, neighborhoods, developers, commissions, state and national agencies and volunteer preservation groups.

Tempe offers the Tempe Historic Property Register and assists people in efforts to list their properties on the National Register of Historic Places. The team works with the State Historic Preservation Office and Tempe Design Review.

Because Tempe's history is so important to the community, there are several events each year to celebrate it, such as Walk Through History, Tales from Double Butte, the Night to Preserve.
