About The SCA

Established in 1977, the SCA is the oldest national organization devoted to the buildings, artifacts, structures, signs, and symbols of the 20th-century commercial landscape. The SCA offers publications, conferences, and tours to help preserve, document, and celebrate the structures and architecture of the 20th century: diners, highways, gas stations, drive-in theaters, bus stations, tourist courts, neon signs, and a lot more. A one year membership entitles you to four issues of the News, two issues of the Journal, other special publications, and invitations to special SCA conferences and tours.

For additional information about the SCA, be sure to review the governance pages, the frequently asked questions and the SCA timeline.
