Keeping our Place: New Realities for Historic Preservation in New Hampshire
Amid new trends in population, the economy, housing, transportation, and climate, this statewide gathering will raise awareness of the ways that New Hampshire is changing and what these changes mean for the preservation and protection of our historic buildings and community character.
Through workshops, lectures, tours, and more, participants will learn from experts and see examples of how communities and organizations can leverage their historic assets to strengthen local economies, promote social interaction, and build a more resilient future. Specific topics will include collaborations with conservation, agriculture and planning efforts; challenges and opportunities in historic downtowns; and new models for both municipalities and non-profits to manage and protect historic properties.
Reception to follow the conference from 4:30pm-6:30pm.
Generous sponsors include Fifield Building Relocation and Restoration, Elizabeth Durfee Hengen Preservation Consultant, Merrimack County Savings Bank, Milestone Engineering & Construction, Inc., N.H. Community Development Finance Authority, N.H. Historical Society, and Samyn-D’Elia Architects, PA.
