During its first year, Preserve the Eatonville Community was primarily an advocacy organization, focusing on preservation strategies including an historic survey of the Town and supporting the opposition of a “community-busting” road-widening project.

Early on, P.E.C.’s founders recognized that historic preservation had to be coupled with vibrant programs in the arts and humanities, and that they must focus on educational excellence if they were to be successful in their mission of conserving the precious heritage and cultural resources extant in Historic Eatonville.
