Semarang is a city rich in cultural acculturation with its own history. Sarekat Islam (SI) Building, which is now named Balai Muslimin (Center for Muslim), itself is never mentioned in history textbooks taught in schools, not ever known by most Semarang people. The building which was built in 1919-1920 has so important significant history for Indonesia and Semarang in particularly that is deserved to be called as a cultural heritage. In 2008 this building started to break down and would be torn down and rebuilt into a three-story commercial building. Komunitas Penggiat Sejarah (KPS) is a local community in Semarang which cares about the history and heritage, made a move and urged to the local city government to ban the building torn down and restore the building. Authors were interested in steps that KPS took and carried out so that eventually the building can stand as it has been remained before. This paper will tell how the efforts and activites that have been done by KPS so that a cultural heritage got the attention and be restored from the local city government. The spirit of the local community could be inspiring to the similar activities in the future. The method used to write this paper was to interview a heritage activist as well as to collect some photographs of documentation both before and after restoration SI Building.
