WHO WE ARE

We are Rethos, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working nationwide for the use of old buildings and sites.
We are holistic in our thought and flexible in our approach. We activate space, invest in communities, and reimagine what can be.

We celebrate the fundamental character of a culture and the qualities that define communities: our ethos.

Our Mission

To lead and inspire people to connect with historic places, promoting community vitality.

Our Vision

Our Purpose

At Rethos, our purpose to reimagine places comes to life through core services that help educate,
motivate and strengthen communities. Our board, staff, and partners work together to protect and
promote communities’ shared environment and culture.

We believe in the power of community.

So much of our support comes from:

NEIGHBORHOOD GROUPS who need advice on historic designations or saving important structures.

 

DEVELOPERS who support the need to work with legislators on the historic tax credits and seek us out for investment partnerships.

 

HOMEOWNERS who want to learn more through our unique classes and experiential tours.

 

MAIN STREET COMMUNITIES for a proven path to economic strength - and more.

Whether you’re an individual or part of a group or business, if you believe in a future that honors our old buildings, beautiful towns, and our culture, you are a part of Rethos.

We believe that old buildings, culture, and small businesses are the foundation for
communities to flourish.
