Preservation Alliance Provides Expanded Virtual Gatherings on Old House and Community Preservation Topics
Looking for information on how to research the history of your house, care for your old cottage, community planning promotion and planning strategies, or fundraising tips for local historic sites and preservation projects? 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 virtual roundtable gatherings. A schedule that includes summer and fall events can be found at www.nhpreservation.org.
Preservation Alliance staff will be joined by experts including preservation contractor Steve Bedard, former Preservation Alliance field service representative Andrew Cushing and preservation consultant Mae Williams 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 dozen gatherings this spring found them practical and inspiring. Preservation contractor and Preservation Alliance board member Ian Blackman is also providing virtual barn assessments through the Alliance.
The New Hampshire Preservation Alliance strengthens communities and stimulates local economies by encouraging the protection and revival of historic buildings and places.
