Preservation Alliance Provides New Virtual Gatherings on Old House and Community Preservation Topics
The N.H. Preservation Alliance invites owners and enthusiasts of old homes or barns as well as leaders of community preservation projects to participate in their new virtual roundtable gatherings. The May schedule can be found at www.nhpreservation.org.
Preservation Alliance staff will be joined by experts including preservation contractors Ian Blackman, Steve Bedard and John Thompson as well as Byron Champlin of Concord, Rebecca Mitchell of Stratham and members of the Division of Historical Resources. A roundtable format encourages questions and information exchange. Attendees of the Preservation Alliance’s first set in April found them practical and inspiring.
The gatherings are free, but the membership-based non-profit encourages donations. The New Hampshire Preservation Alliance strengthens communities and stimulates local economies by encouraging the protection and revival of historic buildings and places.
