Tim Cannan, President & Founder
HistoricForSale.com is managed by Tim Cannan, a native of Rochester, NY. Growing up in the beautiful Finger Lakes Region of Western New York fostered a deep appreciation for preserving local history and architecture, as well as the positive aspects of preserving neighborhoods and historic downtowns. While completing his degree in Policy Studies at Syracuse University, he became active in the historic and cultural preservation efforts of the Preservation Association of Central New York and the Westcott Eastside Neighborhood Association. Upon graduation, Tim worked at the National Park Service's National Center for Conservation and Recreation in Washington, DC, where his main focus of activity was the National Heritage Areas program and the National Heritage Rivers Initiative.
After spending the next two years in beautiful Ithaca, NY working at Cornell University, he next moved to Spokane, WA. While in Spokane, Tim was active in the historic Browne's Addition neighborhood - Spokane's first established neighborhood. Among many projects completed for the community, he coordinated the summer concert series in Coeur d'Alene Park (Spokane's first park), created the neighborhood website and did extensive research for the Historic Neighborhood Survey. Tim was also employed by the Spokane City-County Historic Preservation Department, where he catalogued historic property files and photos, as well as creating a "virtual tour" of the local, State and National Register Properties in Spokane and Spokane County.
Tim created the online historic preservation resource, PreservationDirectory.com, in 1999. Since this time, it has become one of the most prominent resources online for the preservation community. Looking to further the exposure for historic homes for sale listed on PreservationDirectory.com, Tim decided to launch HistoricForSale.com as a complimentary website in the Fall of 2008.
Now permanently settled in the historic St. John's neighborhood of Portland, Oregon, Tim looks forward to serving the preservation community through HistoricForSale.com and PreservationDirectory.com.
