All About Neon

Why should we try to preserve neon signs?

These unique and precious works of art represent an important era in American history and should be preserved.  They tell a story that written words cannot.  Behind each sign is a unique and special small business, often family owned, and has a story to tell. These signs and the history behind them and are very different from the big box businesses that are so abundant today. If they are not revered and saved, this important part of Americana will be gone forever.
