Oscar Amaro and the late Katherine Hildreth founded APG in 2003.

Fourteen years ago this month, a small group of residents met at the Alhambra Historical Society’s Museum to talk about forming a new group. Led by Oscar Amaro and the late Kathy Hildreth, these Alhambrans expressed anger at seeing older homes razed and agreed that it was time to start fighting for the preservation and protection of Alhambra’s historic homes and quaint neighborhoods. And so began the story of Alhambra Preservation Group, or APG. Over time, APG grew from a small group of concerned residents into the successful non-profit organization it is today.

As Alhambra Preservation Group celebrates the 10th anniversary of becoming a non-profit organization, join us for a two-part series back to the not-so-recent past. We’ll celebrate APG’s achievements and milestones. We’ll share APG’s advocacy efforts and awareness-building programs. And, we’ll introduce you to the tight-knit group of members who make up the APG community today and continue to move our city towards the day when Alhambra’s historically and architecturally homes, schools, businesses and churches are recognized, preserved and protected.
