Abuelas Project

What is the Abuelas Project? ¿Qué es el Abuelas Project?

The Abuelas Project pays homage to nuestras abuelas, or our grandmothers, and the strong women in our lives that are our culture-bearers. 

The Abuelas Project is a multi-year preservation initiative to collect, curate, and amplify stories about places that matter to Latinx communities in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.  

Building on recent efforts to conserve Latinx heritage, the digital project seeks to uncover the social, cultural, and economic connections our communities forge through historic places.

Building The Abuelas Project

This would not be possible without the helping hands of LCH board members, staff, interns, fellows, and consultants.  

This project has been funded in part by a grant from the Fondren Preservation Services Fund for Texas

of the National Trust for Historic Preservation (NTHP), The Mellon Foundation, and the Cultural and Community Resilience Grant on behalf of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).
