Thousands of historically significant remote structures are falling into disrepair across America. These include fire towers, mining buildings, log barns, rural schoolhouses, ranches, and cabins that all tell a vivid story of our past, and, if preserved, can teach us how to create our future. Narrated by Peter Coyote, “Saving Places” follows HistoriCorps as their intrepid staff and volunteer crews work to conserve threatened structures on public lands. From uncovering historic back stories and highlighting surrounding natural and social environments to featuring the challenging restoration work of over a dozen extraordinary projects, “Saving Places” is a genuine adventure into the past.
