America’s mid-century Modernist houses are brilliant, livable works of art, yet they are being bulldozed in record numbers – largely because buyers, sellers, realtors, and cities are unaware of their importance – or how to preserve, repair, and protect them. You can't save something if you don't know where it is, so attracting donors for our documentation and research programs is critical.  All donations are tax-deductible.

Modernist Archive, Inc. is a 501C3 North Carolina nonprofit educational archive with websites USModernist and NCModernist. 

You can mail a check to Modernist Archive Inc., 5409 Pelham Road, Durham NC 27713.
