The State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) is responsible for overseeing the governmental program of historic preservation for Connecticut’s citizens. Originally established as the Connecticut Historical Commission in 1955, the agency was merged into the Commission on Culture & Tourism in 2003 and was renamed the Historic Preservation and Museum Division.

The State Historic Preservation Office was again moved in 2011 into the Department of Economic and Community Development providing new opportunities for collaboration on restoration and community revitalization. SHPO administers a range of federal and state programs that identify, register and protect the buildings, sites, structures, districts and objects that comprise Connecticut's cultural heritage.
