Tell Us: What Place Matters to You?

Posted on: April 8th, 2009 by Sarah Heffern 2 Comments

Sharp-eyed preservationists watching Good Morning, America this past Saturday might have seen something familiar flash by in the "Your Three Words" segment. (Miss it? Go have a look... We'll wait.)

This Place Matters.

The folks at the Chase Stone Barn in Wisconsin filmed themselves shooting the photo above -- part of our This Place Matters campaign -- and sent it in to GMA for inclusion in the segment.  We're so excited that they got such great national exposure for their beautiful barn!

What place matters to you?

Honor a your special place by sharing your This Place Matters photo with us -- or plant a flag on our map if you're a little camera-shy. If you're like me and can't think of how to pick just one place, there's no need to worry. You can add a photo or flag for all your favorites!
