The mission of the Cleveland Park Historical Society (CPHS) is to maintain and enhance the character and strength of Cleveland Park as an historic, multifaceted, urban residential neighborhood.

CPHS seeks to preserve the character of the historic district’s architecture, public space, and natural environment. It encourages restoration of historic structures and new construction that complements the character of the historic district. It undertakes projects to enhance the quality of public space.

CPHS engages in advocacy on behalf of the neighborhood on matters that have a substantial bearing on residential and commercial architecture, streetscapes, and natural features within the historic district.

CPHS sponsors educational activities, research, and public programming in support of its preservation goals.
